BIG THANKS to all the electric company people who came to help out with our big outages. I met two hot and tired young men today who helped bring our power back. They were from PA. They said help is coming from all over, including GA and OK!!! Thanks to all of them for making such long trips and doing such hard work in our hot town. :)
