They were busy

I can't believe the progress made overnight. I got off of work, and headed back to try grocery shopping again. Most of the trees are chopped and gone. There are a few staged at the side of the road waiting on a truck. Power company has most of the poles replaced already. They were in the process of changing the wires over from the broken pole I drove under yesterday, onto the new one they erected next to it. Unbelievable how fast they moved and how much they got done in a brief period of time.

A couple of the guys from work are volunteer firemen. They spent most of last night out clearing downed trees after working all day at the shop, and then, came back for more fun at work today. They were headed back out after work to help some more. Good bunch of guys. Booneville, which is the next town over, declared a state of emergency while they continue to try and undo some of the damage. They will be without power for a couple more days. Hopefully the worst of the weather is behind us now.
