Rockbridge County is a bit crazy right now with the power outages caused by the derecho storm on Friday night. We are so very lucky that the Campus Kitchen has power so we have not had to toss any food. We are also happy to be in a position to help our clients. Multiple assisted living and group homes we serve on a regular basis are without power. We are doing our best to meet their needs.
We made a bonus trip to Natural Bridge this morning to find clients grouped together in a room with fans run off of generators. We brought as many dry foods for them to snack on as we could and will bring a hot dinner tonight. We’re just glad that those needing oxygen have access to it.
Dominion is hoping to have 85% of the outages restored by this evening. We want our clients to be comfortable and hope they are included in that 85% but if not we’ll be back at it tomorrow, and even on the 4th as needed.
Do you have power? How are you coping with the heat?
