Storm-83 hours without electricity

Last Sunday at 3:00 in the morning we had a storm blow through. I thought nothing of it. Hard rain hit the windows. I thought it was like any other storm. I just wanted to sleep. Then I knew the power went out so I got up to called the power outage. Decided to go back to bed. Went to bed and woke up around 7:00 am and thought wow the electricity is still out. I went to my back window and this is what the back yard look like. No wonder no electricity. I found out a few hours later on the radio in the car that we had 70 miles per hour wind. 2,000 people were without electricity. I thought we would get the power back on that day. No we ended up being the 200 people left to have power off. 83 hours without power. We did have the neighbors give us a genator temporarily for our freezer and frig. Thanks to great neighbors. Then they ended up getting their power on and we had to wait another day. Thanks again to the backyard neighbors they hooked us up to their house for juice to our frig and freezer again. Without that we would have lost everything in our freezer. We did lose some things in the fridge. Here is what happened. The neighbors tree branch blew off and knocked down the powerlines in which knocked down the pole and broke it in half. So this was going to take them sometime to get our electricity on. Infact it took the guys 7 hours to get this all back together. They ended up digging in our yard to put a pole in. I was hoping they would find oil, but wishful thinking. I really appreciate electricity now. I forgot what it was like without air conditioner, no TV or no radio. The good thing is I didn't have to clean house or cook!
