Happy July 4th!
I enjoyed a fireworks show and ice cream with friends today. My first one in years! (The fireworks...not the ice cream. I enjoy that regularly...) Definitely a fun time!
Power is trickling back on across the state as damage gets cleaned up, and things are definitely improving quickly thanks to all the wonderful help we've received from out of state. I think I can speak for everyone when I say "Thank you!!!" to all the people working extremely hard to turn the lights back on. Food and water drives have starting in places where power isn't expected to be back on until later this month, and cooling shelters are still popping up across the state. My mom's power came back on today as well, three days early. Hopefully everyone's comes back up sooner than expected!
I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful holiday!
