Things we hear from Mississippi

  • My brother’s father-in-law now has power — and, in fact, said power returned while Frank was leaving me a voice mail, if the spontaneous cheer in the background is any indication — which is good, as it means Frank and Aubrey have someplace cool to be for a while, as their house won’t have any for a couple days, if not longer.
  • Our mother’s house is not so lucky: they likely won’t have power for a month. They’re going to try to get a generator at Sam’s in the morning, as there are rumors of a shipment. My 71-year-old stepfather has already run through one chainsaw blade clearing their own modest driveway. Seven trees will do that, we reckon.
