We had a very nasty storm Wednesday at 10:30 p.m. When we heard a tree by the house crack Phil and I went running for the baby's room(the pines are very tall all around the house) but we only made it to the livingroom before we heard it hit the ground (cringing!). It took the power line with it and draped the line over Phil's car which, of course, was parked in the driveway behind mine. At the beginning of our dirt road several trees fell and took down all the lines including the phone lines.We also had a heck of a time getting my car out around Phil's and the power line laying across it yesterday so that we could go get something to drink and some ice to keep things cold. We were also good and hot and miserable yesterday and were mighty glad to see them get the power back on. We didn't get our power restored again until this morning (Friday) at 3:30 a.m. (We were all awake even the baby. No one could sleep because it was so hot.).
