Storm Update

Most of you have heard about the storm that swept through the mid Atlantic states last weekend. It hit West Virginia, and the Jennings Brae Bank Farm, hard. Mollie asked me to post this update on her behalf because they are without power.

The storm ripped a transformer down into the yard. All the utility lines were pulled off the house, barn, and buildings. Many trees and limbs are down. The animals are mostly okay, except for a few missing chickens. The tin roof was blown off parts of the barn. There is a lot of fence damage due to the downed trees. The farm is without power and water. The power company says the power will be back on Friday at the earliest. Mollie and John were able to obtain a generator to power their refrigerator and freezer, thus saving their frozen produce and meat. Through the kindness of friends, they have a place to stay in New Martinsville until their power is restored.

Reporting from Rockford, Illinois,


  1. That is serious damage. I have never known that amount of damage to happen there. WOW. Love you both and hope you are ok.

  2. Have been waiting all day for some news about Mollie and John. They have survived an epic storm...with lots of hits. Sam, thanks, so much for the update. Love, AL
