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.
