Hurricane Rita Update Part 7 Need Power Generator

I have not heard from Mary since this morning and she has not returned home yet. I stayed there till nightfall.

The phone situation is still a hit or miss, mostly miss.

Mary does not know if she still has a job and unable to contact her employer.

I have been running around trying to purchase a power generator and traps for the roof. I have not had any luck finding them.

The estimate for power being restored is 3 to 4 weeks. The main grid and substations has major damage.

If anyone would care to assist me in getting a generator and tarps shipped down to me would be very much appreciated. You can reach me thru Yahoo or Gmail with cajunpet.

The only water damage I could see was in the sun room where the roofing felt was blown off.

Buttercup (cat) and Oreo (dog) are doing fine.

I am totally exhausted and it has become very difficult for me to get out of the car and walk.

I will have to see a doctor to get some pain and anti-inflammatory medication tomorrow.


Take care.

I will look around for a power generator in Iowa.
But could it be shipped in time? Would you have
gas to run it? Iowa is kind of far away.

Hi Interested, Mary told me that she did not want me to get a generator. She is afraid to have one and will do without it.

We have gas here in Eunice, but it is limited and have to wait in long lines to get any.

Thank you for wanting to help.

Take care.
