Even though Kentucky finally got a day to thaw this weekend, the crisis of downed power lines and lack of water continues. Some areas are still calling for several weeks yet without power! My daughter and husband live on a country side road, like most rural counties, and have had no water or power since the storm last week. Her husband works in town at a building supply and hardware. Today some of the elderly were able to get out for the first time. Some of the stories they told were heartbreaking as some told of their week of survival. Without heat, water, or help, one lady just stayed in her bed all week! It is hard to imagine being in the dark cold nights alone. Please continue to pray for these areas.
The beauty of the ice is not without price! Such a hardship for thousands of Kentuckians.
The pines just could not hold up their heads to the burden.
Trees lay on their new house with 7 more down in the yard. Oh the clean up! I am thankful our children could take shelter with other family. Many have not had that priviledge. Three schools in their couny (Grayson) have been centers for hundreds this week; a warm place to sleep and meals prepared. I am still amazed that even with their pleas for help, Grayson County had received NO assistance for relief this past week, at least as of yesterday. I hope and pray that some may come this week as it turns cold once again. Please keep them all in your prayers. This is not over for them yet!
