I've been lucky to get my hands on one of the few computers for miles that is working!
We have experienced the worse ice storm in recorded history. Kentucky was hit the hardest and declared a state of emergency...and that was before it got really bad! However Elizabethtown (yes the one the movie was made in with the same name) and surrounding communities (which is us) have been declared a state of emergency...within a state of emergency.
Its pretty bad. In E-town alone (not including us) 607,000 + people are without power and water. In E-town a lone 800 "snapped" powerline poles, the count is not in on the lines itself.
On our property...in a mile radious 12 powerlines snapped in two! All of our fences are down....limbs and whole trees have fallen and it looks like a war zone...litteraly. We stood out after the ice came and listened to the trees fall....sounded like a war in the background!
So far, no cattle has been lost, nor horses, they are all surviving well. Luckily no calves born in this mess.
I think that King and Jack have calmed down...they were really freaked out after the ice hit...in fact they were so freaked they made getting in their shelter a little dangerous. Having disoriented horses isnt a good thing I've found out.
But King had enough about him to litteraly walk me across the lot to his feed trough....I had to hold on to his mane, and he took little baby steps. What a horse! Thats all I can say, he took care of me.
But things are finally getting into some routine....feeding is taking forever, even the big 4 wheel drive tractor has been spinning wheels everywhere. But its getting done..what took us 2 - 3 hours is at least doubled.
But we have a generator, which gives us a light and tv and coffee pot!!! WOO HOO! And a nice hot wood stove! We are doing well much better than most in KY!!! Thankful for God and wonderful friends who have all pulled together...our community is the BEST!
So it'll be awhile before I get back online....so keep us in your prayers!
Thanks all, cant wait to catch up with everyone soon!
