“Oh no! Wow, I am so sorry, bud, but I’m glad you and your family are alright. We’ll say a prayer for all of you here. Man, I was working my ass off in a Cat 988H and stopped to take a break and chug some Gatorade. This came as a shock and I’m not even there.”

“That is just a small part, bud. Lost one building, shingles and the like. But the forestry damage is vast. My neighbor has 350 acres of downed fences and trees to be removed before we can refence.”
