Thanks to SCE&G Workers
For those of you that may have followed my last Blog, titled, Should I Stay Or Should I Go, well, I went. I went to Atlanta Thursday and returned Sunday feeling very blessed that we only had a Category 1. Traveling the back road from Atlanta to Aiken Highway 78, to Highway 61, I didn't encounter much traffic. However, when I hit Highway 61, there it was; the evidence of the hurricane. Many trees down and many trees on power lines with lots of debris.
As I drove down 61, I passed 2 trucks from SCE&G with workers trying to get some trees off of the power line. I said a prayer for them to be kept safe from the dangers of their work.
As I got near my home, I even saw a downed oak tree with about a 6' wide base, down in 1 piece. Who would have thought, the mighty oak? Fortunately my home only had some limbs and debris in the yard. I also had a limb hanging on a line in the backyard...scary. We re-gained power today about 2:30. blessed it wasn't like Hugh and no power for a couple of weeks. SCE&G was in my neighborhood to check someone else's home and I told them I had a limb on a line in my back yard. A very nice man came and checked it and as it turned out, it was only the line for the internet however, he got the tree limb off the line for me. His crew was from Aiken, SC and they had left this morning at 5:00 a.m. to be of service to the Lowcountry. He talked about how nice everyone was that he had encountered. That's Charleston for you!! I thanked him and his crew for being of service to us.
You just can't help but appreciate those that risk their lives so that we may have electricity and they do it everyday. Whether it's a SCE&G serviceman, a police officer, or a member of the military, remember to thank them for their service. They appreciate hearing it.
