Status Update

By Steven Taylor @ 10:48 am

Well, not very long after my last post, the power went out, and stayed out (and is still out). I am out and about getting a much-needed cup of coffee at Panera Bread, who, thankfully, has both power and free WiFi.

We escaped with no damge, although my backyard is full of sticks and small branches (the remnants of Frances had already managed to take the large dead branches out of my trees). A pine tree in one of my neighbor’s yard behind me snapped and feel on their fence, however. A few blocks away, one street in my neigborhood wasn’t so lucky, it seems they received an extra-special burst of wind, and there were numerous large trees down, inlcuding one on a house (that not only damaged the roof, but busted some of their bricks off the side of the house) and another was on some power lines.

In limited driving around the eastern side of town there is a lot of debris from trees and a number of trees (large and small) down. The west-side of town got the worst of it, it seems, also north of Montgomery, such as the motel in Prattville which had a roof collapse and the walls buckle.

As of yesterday afternoon there were approximately 2,000,000 persons in the state without power and 83% of the Montgomery area was part of that number. Given that there is power less than 5 miles from my house, one can only hope that they will restore it soon. Call me a Twenty-First Century wimp, but I like coffee, TiVo, a/c, and the internet, to name a few. At least we have a gas-powered hot water heater.

I will say that I have no desire to live in the Ninenteenth Century.

  1. But the really important question. How many political signs were blown down??!!

  2. My parents house in Baldwon County made it through OK too fortunately.

    However, I lived in Destin, FL (near Fort Walton Beach) for a year before moving to DC and seeing the damage to the coastal areas around the panhandle breaks my heart because I know many of those roads anhomes we are now seeing destroyed.

  3. As I told my parents in Montgomery yesterday, you know you’re in trouble when your city is featured on The Weather Channel.

    Best of luck in getting the power back on!
