Today as the sun comes up, we are still without power. I called yesterday evening after working on cleaning up all day to find that Duke Energy had marked us down as having had power restored. I spent 30 minutes on the phone with the nice ladies explaining that that was not the case and that we needed someone out here as soon as possible.
What that means for us is continuing the program of running generators, swapping freezers on and off, and making sure everyone is taken care of, both critters and people.
What that means for you is, we are closed for customer visits. We will still be cleaning up downed trees, repairing fences, and limping along as best with can with what we have working. Until power comes back, we won’t be open for business. We are hoping that the line crews will show up today. Having animals without a water source and downed power lines should put us as a priority but I can’t swear that will be the case after yesterday’s example. The good news is power is back on along Old Stage Road so at least it’s possible to hook us up. It’s just a question of if we can get a line crew out here.
We will keep you up to date on our status as it changes.
