Kentucky Relief

I've been meaning to post this forever...
Seth's unit was activated last month to go help with all of the damage caused by the huge ice storms they had up in Kentucky. No electricity, water, heat, food, gas, etc for weeks because of it. So scary. Anyway, a local paper did an article on how the military firefighters saved the day because all of the local stations just couldn't handle the magnitude of the job. There were several fires caused by people trying to stay warm or by the electricity trying to come back on and sparking. It was NO fun to get a phone call one Friday night saying Seth had to report by 7:00am the next morning and they didn't know how long it would take. Luckily, it only took 2 weeks before he was home again. I don't know what I would do if he ever got deployed overseas...cross my fingers. Seth got some really great pictures of the ice on the trees...I will post them as soon as I can. I think this was a really neat experience for him being able to help those people and even got to fight some real fires! ( Nothing ever happens in Franklin :) It was tough having him gone but I am so proud he was able and willing to help!
