      Hope they get things fixed and you are soon back to normal. I remember that Oct 30 2011 snowfall. We went through E. Stroudsburg PA a few days later on our way to a cruise out of NJ. They still had snowbanks.

      The outages are spotty as my buddy a mile away had his come back in at one am. A few hundred thousand after without power currently in this area.

      Still no power. Had to heat up water on the grill for coffee. No damage at my house, just limbs everywhere. Lots of limbs down on the streets around me but nothing large here.

      Electricity, hot water, and flush toilets are three things we take for granted... until we don't have them.

      At least you don't have to worry about pipes freezing like those states on the northern tier do if they'd lose power now.   Our neighbors bought a whole house generator a few years ago. My husband and I decided for the few remaining years in our home (we are both in our 70's), it wasn't cost effective. If the power appears to be out come nightfall, we'll go to a hotel/motel. October 30 2011 we had a freak snowfall with 6" - 8" of snow. Since the trees still had leaves, it caused lots and lots of trees to topple and of course hit power lines and transformers. We had no power for 8 1/2 days. We toughed it out at home. Never again!   I hope you either get the power back soon or have a nice stay in Alabama.
