PostSubject: I'm still Alive!   Fri Aug 14, 2009 11:39 pm

Recently, there was a vicious storm in my area, and we had lost power for almost three days, and we didn't have TV, internet or phone until a half an hour ago. I see lots of things have changed around here, and I am aware that we are no longer a Operation 7 clan. I'll get some pictures of this devastating storm up later.

Quotes from this incident:
My Uncle Dean was down in New Orleans after Katrina hit (he is an EMT)
He said "This is like walking around after Katrine hit, only it doesn't smell as bad."

My Neighbors said "We were lucky, if that branch had fallen 5 feet to the left, our son's room would have been demolished."

My family and I were having a cookout at the local park, let's just say if we had been at that park five minutes after we left, it would have ended in tears, as a pine tree snapped in half and smashed the picnic table we were sitting at a few moments before.
Me and my dad went to pick up some flashlights at Meijer, and we got locked out of our own town by the police. We had to stay at a hotel for a night.

This was a horrible storm, and we are still recovering from it.

Thanks for reading this tragic story, luckily only one person was killed, but almost 100,000 people were out of power. A house just down the road from me nearly got sliced in half.

Well my aunt and uncle had the electric meter ripped right off their house, and a few downed trees in both yards, I'd say we got it pretty lucky. Still, many people don't have power.

No, worse, we played board games and flashlight tag at night.

man a few years ago they stopped the electricity at our villa house so we had to cope with no power for a whole summer
actually i can live without it
it just means less things to do at my free time not starve to death or something

I died during this event, then the power came back on and I was still dead because of no internet and TV. Then when that came on, I lived again! We still don't have phone service, though.
