Greetings from the DEZ (De-Electricified Zone)! On Wednesday the roofers had finished re-shingling my house. About 3/4th of them are around the neighborhood now. Waiting for phones to come back to call roofer and tell'em, "The roof leaked..." It was very surreal during the storm. My parents Full-size Ford van rocked like a baby cradle. The poolcage ended up in the pool; after the second floor deck roof fell onto it. Got a broken window in my room. The computer room walls had streams of water rolling down them. Looked like something from a horror movie. PC is ok though, 'course ain't got any power yet. (sending this from work, they weren't touched) The world outside looks like a war zone, people walking around all dazed, choppers flying overhead, Red Cross running around, camps for the homeless, Shower/relief centers heare & there. Having to drive 40-50 miles to get stuff; or wait for hours in line to get it nearby. Whole place looks like a Mad Max movie. Had to run around seeing to things with my Dad; who overdid himself and nearly had to get medical care (Diabetic, amoung 15 other health problems). Been helping neighbors, some elderly gals that got no hubby; never had to deal with anything near this. Making sure my Mom was ok; my grandfather, my Aunt and her kids were fine. Actually they're all up and my cousins; just 8 mi. north, with everything working. Have to be, my grandfathers house is toast. Porch roof lead to the inside, and got sucked out; ceiling inside is dropping in with water. Starting to breakdown myself here at work. 'Cause I ain't got to see to nothing like at home. Got pics if ya'll wanna see. Can only do it from work though.
