Glad to hear that, it must have been very frustrating for you the last few days..

Let's hope that the others in your situation do not have to wait much longer either..

We are still out here in our part of KY, running a generator some to keep a few things going.
Lots of trees down in the fields but fences survived with not a lot of damage, a lot of broken limbs and tops still will be falling for a while. Ground has thawed out now and it is a muddy mess creating problems for the electric companies getting in to repair the lines.
