Nice Neighborhood8:34 AM
Power is back on at Cherokee. It’s so nice to see life filling up this space again. Weathermen forecasted for rain all week, but the plants could use the showers. Rain won’t defeat anyone in Stratford Hills after what we’ve experienced these past two weeks. There so much to say for the people who live in this neighborhood. We all survived Irene and her terror. We’ve grown stronger and more patient.
We’ve witnessed some amazing things in the neighborhood. We’ve come together and it makes the appeal of Stratford Hills and Oxford that much more attractive. One friendly person walked up and down the streets with a carafe of hot coffee for those without access to a cup of joe. We saw people help clean up debris in yards of the elderly. Neighbors are checking on one another and offering their homes for shelter to those without power or generators.
It’s an awesome sight.
Thank you Dominion Virginia Power, Stratford Hills, Oxford and surrounding neighborhoods.
