Storm Update

Things are not looking good for us here at Yesteryear Acres.  There is significant storm damage everywhere. We have lost so many trees and we have limbs everywhere. Our entire town is without electricity along with over 1/2 million other people in our state suffering the same fate.  Roads are closed. Stores are closed.  There are very few places to get gasoline. We had Hurricane Ike blast through here in 2008 and that left us without power for 10 days.  This storm is much worse.  After Hurricane Ike, the weather was calm, no wind, 72* and bright sunny days.  This week, we have temperatures in the high 90's/low 100's and another destructive storm is supposed to hit us this afternoon.  The power company estimates we will be without power for at least a week. We are under a state of emergency for our entire state.  Right now Mr. Yesteryear Acres is trying to figure out how to power our water pump.  We have well water and no electricity means no water.  Right now - we are out of water except for what we stored yesterday. Hopefully Mr. "Generator" Yesteryear Acres will get the water pump up and running along with our freezers and refrigerator.  Things aren't looking to bright for us right now. It is going to be a long hard hot sticky tortured week.
