Unhappy Storm

Well, we survived the storm here in eastern NC. Lots of damage and power outage.
We lost one huge tree and about half of our back deck. We were the lucky ones.
Spent about half the time in the rv (after the storm pasted) with the genset running so we could have some ac, refrig and lights. Ran a cord to the inside refrig to keep eveything cold. Kept us going for two days. Only way to get the news was with the rv's tv.
We learned a lot on what can be run, etc.
Will be taking the rig to our son's house who is still without power.

Please say a pray for those still in need. It's not a pretty picture around here!

Happy to hear you were safe. The news video shows that your area got the brunt of the storm.

Yep it was a stressful weekend for sure, and I`m glad its behind us. Many folks hurting now with all the flooding in particular.
