Irene's Got Nothing on Cherokee10:29 AM
Cherokee is still standing after Irene ripped through our city like a steam engine knocking down trees and power lines. After sitting in our Family Room for a few hours, we made an executive decision to evacuate. This is what we found the next day.
Irene did her fair share of damage to Richmond. There are still 50% of Richmonders without power and lots of trees to clean up. Dominion Virginia Power estimates that all of Richmond’s power will be restored by Saturday morning.
As you drive by neighborhoods around our city, open your windows and you will only hear the sound of generators. Almost every home was affected. It’s amazing.
After a few hours of tender-loving care, Cherokee is like new again… all she needs is her power back.
