Power Outage

Good Day to All, we have had some terrible stormy weather here in central Arkansas since monday. Tornados have touched down in several towns and peoples lives have been taken and 1/3rd of our state has been without electricity since monday afternoon. During this time we have had over 8 inches of rain. We all take the good weather for granted but it could be you or your neighbors next time.

We have living by candle light the past 2 nites and playing dominoes and cards to pass the time. I began to worry about our freezers today when i was told we may be without electricity for 10 more days. My neighbor has a bigtime welding shop and since he is not able to work he let me borrow one of his portable welders that just happens to have a big generator on it. It produces 10,000 watts of power. It runs on diesel fuel. Now you see why we are told to love our neighbors!! Now i can play on the computer, have a refrigerator and have lights. We have city water so we are kinda back to normal. Pray for those that need lifting up and love your neighbor some how. Jim Elliott


  1. Hi Jim,

    Those storms you had have been coming through here in waves. We had one a 9:00 am, 3:30 pm, 7:00 pm and I don't know how many more waves are coming through. Our electricity was out for 6 hours, but we feel fortunate because they say some could be without for 3 days. Ove 70,00 homes and businesses without electricity.

  2. Interesting and useful information that you have provided here on your page.So great to find this page.
