The 'Power Out' Post

As the world knows the Georgia is experiencing a Winter disaster.  The Governor and the President declared a state of emergency for Georgia.  The majority of us who do not need to be on the roads have heeded the advice and directions of our leaders to stay home.  That includes yours truly.

After taking in the mass hysteria at the grocery stores on Monday and hearing of homeless folks stranded in this mess, I am so thankful for a place to call home.  And I'm also thankful for our first responders who are out there helping to keep people safe and the roads clear. Georgia Power is working diligently to restore power, but it is a battle with ice laden trees and iced roads. 

So I'm hunkering down in my car in the garage for a moment to chargw the phone abd writw this post. Not sure if I can get pictures posted now, so I'm going with the post only. I will come back and add pictures later.

Hi, Jordon. 

     My wife's sister is in Alpharetta; I have cousins in Roswell and in Sandy Springs.  Per their Facebook posts everybody is doing "okay"; they all have power.

BTW, I like your new Profile Picture!

Thanks Fred! I have checked in with folks north of city and many still have power.  I'm out by the airport and we hit hard with power outages.  We did the new picture in December.  Appreciate the compliment

Thanks Judi!  I was delighted last night when the power came back on.  I think the whole neighborhood was shouting.  All is well in the metro ATL.

Best of GREAT success to you in 2014!

Ugh, how long was your power outage.  Ours was 41 hours plus a little.  Miserable.  So happy to be up and running and I'm taking out some trees this year that close to the office.  It was a serious lesson for me.

Mine was out for about 27 hours and after it came back, I saw your FB post that you were still out and flickering.  It's amazing how much I miss my energy sources when they are not available.  And it was a lesson for me too.  Thanks Tammy!

Tough going for Atlantans or sure. Winter has been a bit harsh this year. I know we Southerners are fodder for some to laugh at, but when the storm hit up north, I saw they didn't fare much better.  Don't wish it on anyone and glad to see it wasn't any worse than it could have been.
