Storm causes loss of power in Ohio

Northeast Ohio

Wishing one and all a most happy day even though the weather may not be what one would like. If you were able to get out of bed, walk from one room to another, hear the sound of rain or the voice of a loved one and be able to see their precious face, you have already had a blessed day.

I hope and pray all are safe and well after the storm. That was some more storm! It started raining here Sunday, pouring down as I came out of church, and hasn’t stopped yet. The wind was the scariest. I thought everything would blow away.

Monday, we lost power and having a sump pump in basement, were still afraid it would be flooded. We went down and put anything we didn’t want to get wet up on ledges or whatever.

Red got the generator out but could not start it. We had to call Bill and Catharine, who came up to help me dip a pump hole.

I don’t know what we would have done without them. It was after five on Tuesday morning before Bill left and we just about collapsed.

I had to use right arm with the plate in it and the one I hurt when I fell. Now I have a really sore arm and body. I’m sure some others suffered worse damage and my heart, love and prayers are with them.

Red and I had doctor’s appointments last Thursday. We usually go mornings, but our sweet niece Joyce Sergent took us in the evening. Both of us really hate to ask family for help, but right now we have no other options.

I hope they know how much we love them and how much we appreciate all the special things they do without being asked.

I got the nicest phone call from Marie Boyd in Dante, Va. I just loved talking with her. I have written to her a few times, but a voice is so much better and lately letters have not been written so much. Too many things happening. Soon I hope.

Oh. I forgot to tell you that we are both doing fairly well. No doctor visits for two months unless an emergency.

I talked to Jeanie, and they were okay. She and I usually talk pretty often.

It’s getting pretty cold here. So far no snow, but we could have a big one come morning.

This pea brain of mine has decided to take a break or maybe go on vacation, so I had better hurry up and finish this.

I haven’t talked to Bill and Redia today, but I do know they had to pick up work clothes and Georgia said she and Richard might stop by tonight.

To all at Antioch Church in Louisville, a big hello and love to all. Bro. Wayne, I was so glad to see you at Little Edna Church and to get to talk with you. From comments I heard here and there, everyone enjoyed your message and we all hope you will be back sometime soon.

Sending love and prayers to all, and wishing only the best for everyone.
