Saturday night, our power went out because a tree fell on a power line near our house. This happened shortly after 11 p.m. All night, we heard Jackson Electric workers cutting the tree and working in the pouring rain. At 6 a.m., our electricity came back on.

We just want to say a big “thank you” to those men who worked so hard for us under those miserable conditions. You are our heroes!
