Where the broken tree stump is, there were several trees in there we had to remove as they were bent well over the driveway.
This is the left end of a large workshop. If you look closely you can see a limb pointing down to the right. Elder Gowans had to climb up onto the roof and trim several branches back that had crashed down on top of the building. It was also covered with dirt and pine needles you can see on the ground.
The right end of the building.
This tree was completely broken down by the ice storm.
A beautiful home.
Here is all the debris we hauled out last Monday.
After we finished our visit at the Malcomb's we drove all the way from Grovetown down to old Augusta clear down by the Savannah river. We visited with a new fellow and his wife and son. We learned that he just got out of the Army and was waiting for a job to open up on Post, but it was taking a long time for things to get worked out. He has a cute little family; we had a nice visit with them and encouraged them to remain patient, faithful and that Heavenly Father will work out everything for their good.
From there we went back to Post and had a very nice visit with Sister Lonsberry. While there the cell phone started ringing off the hook; we tried to ignore it since we were in the appointment. But then one text message caught Elder Gowans' eye, "Your apartment has been burglarized". We continued our visit and gave her our message and then departed. We made some phone calls on the way back and learned that someone had kicked the door in. They went through our apartment, but apparently found nothing of value or nothing they wanted. Thank goodness they didn't take our computer. Heavenly Father was definitely watching over us and our apartment tonight! Thank you for watching over us and protecting our goods! We love you!
