charlotte...i was 6. i remember all the neighbors grilling out since there was no power and everyone's frozen meat needed to be eaten before it spoiled.
we were without power for 13 days. a tree fell on our house, but did minimal damage.
I still wonder to this day why my mom had those 4 whole chickens in the freezer. We were one of the last neighborhoods to get power so I remember lots of trips to K&W cafeteria. Our yard had tons of trees, I was hauling logs for weeks.
That's basically what I remember - K&W and lots of logs.
