You have all been so kind, loving and supportive while I have been so uptight about my bro.....well, got an email from my nephew and he is with my bro and SIL and all is fine......they, of course, are out of power and they are using their generator sparingly as gas is near impossible to get.....they have wind damage but all is well with them....Thank you, Lord!!!

Great news!! I am glad all of them are OK... IT is going to take awhile to recover from all the damage.

by Sewmum1 13 Sep 2017

Good news to hear from them. I imagine you will have some relief now

by cfidl 13 Sep 2017

It has been tough all around. Glad all is well with your family.

Hugs, not being able to "be there" puts gray hairs in your head in a big ole hurry.

What a relief to find that all is well with your brother- as much as it can be. Will continue with prayers.

Glad they are fine and its your prerogative as a sister to worry about your brother. Being without power for more than a hour or two is difficult. The most I have been through was about 4 days (but we had no back up at all.)

When we move to Arkansas in a few years we are going to make sure we have a generator......the electric goes out in the Ozark area we will be in, often enough to need one...

This is such encouraging news Vicki. After hearing/reading all the news that is coming out of America I cannot fathom that amount of people out of power etc. I think the longest we've ever been without power is a few hours.
I pray that with all the work to be done in the coming months that this will bring out the best in humanity. It's so encouraging seeing the help that is being given so far. Love Chris

I'm so thankful you have good news of your family. Gas cannot be pumped without electricity to run the pumps. I learned this during Super Storm Sandy. They are being very wise. I know that emergency resources are being sent by the many many hundreds so hopefully, gas stations will be up and pumping soon.. I know the millions (2/3 of the state) are getting prayer support every minute. Hugs to you. I know you need hugs. I finally breathed myself once we got word that all of our friends were safe.

I am so relieved. You must be so happy. They are smart to use the generator sparingly.
