Sunday night. No power. ... Little stretch of Nessmith Road. Everybody around me's got electricity. It's ... 9:30. I've been without power since 3:30. You can't get ahold of anybody on the telephone! There are no trucks out! ... Nuthing but those ... company line of ... 'we know you have an outtage. We'll get to you.' ... I believe we've been overlooked. I don't appreciate it.
