Storm days , April will not be missed.
All i have now is a cell phone. I;m trying to call Entergy,, although i'm sure it was already reported. AND MY CELL PHONE SAYS EMERGENCY CALLS ONLY. I could call NO ONE. I could TEXT no one. I COULD EMAIL NO ONE. well at least for 45 minuets.
I crawl out,,, and i have NO ELECTRIC and NO WATER?????? NO WATER???? i call and leave a message at the water company,,, not them..... so i drive around in the rain to 3 neighbors asking if they have water, they do. AND some had damage to their roof. UPROOTED trees, 4 of which are on the property line, and will probably eventually fall across the driveway... they are holding each other up. BIG TREES.
Back to the water. so, i walk the water line. almost one thousand feet. Closer to the house,,, a LARGE tree limb sticking straight up... WHO KNEW,,, the limb stuck into the ground and BROKE the water line. i stuck my arm down the hole to my shoulder. and yep. BROKE.
so back to the road , trying to turn off water with channel locks. ( I now have the correct tool and lots of bruises.
I did manage to get a friend out for a temp fix on the water line. he had to get more parts and we will check again for those nasty drips.
guess i'll have a large water bill, since its the same month the water heater went out.
its been rough,,, and more to come. Some personal issues going on also that can be major for a family member. Only time will tell.
sorry for the humongous book... more for my benefit in years to come.
OH the picture is after electric was back, but i called Entergy back later in the day because a limb was still on the line, which i could see causing more power surges very soon.
APRIL, BE GONE. MAY please get better.
PS, at least the Limb that broke the water line didn't come through the roof. yeahhhhhhhhhh,
