First things first. I'm not looking for hand outs so ease your minds and
please read the post below.
I did something yesterday that makes me feel really Good and at the Same
time it makes me feel very sick in my stomach.
I live in Louisville Kentucky and we here felt the power of Ike's wrath
yesterday as he crossed our Area. 70-75 mile an hour winds played havoc
on the area downing large trees, power lines removing roofs leaving over
300000 people (including myself) without power.
Admittedly, I for one was not prepared for Ike and now have a very large
tree(approx 3ft in diameter) from next door(my son's yard)laying on top of
my fence and above ground pool.
I live in a Neighborhood that consists mostly of elderly retired people.
Yesterday when Ike struck our area I decided to check on the surrounding
neighbors to make sure everyone was alright after seeing trees snapped in
half like twigs.
While checking on my neighbors I learned that 4 of my neighbors(on a
fixed income)required power to sustain their medical equipment. With out
thinking, I darted to the closest open store and purchased 4 gas powered
Generators. When I returned, I began helping others clean up the mess
that Ike had made.
That was the part that made me feel good. I figured my family and I would
be fine until the power came back on since we had food and in the past
power was normally restored with in 24 hours. Was I ever wrong.
Today The Louisville Gas and Electric company states that it may take
them 7-10 days to restore the power to our area.
I found out three things today that I didn't know yesterday!
- The power won't be back on for 7-10 days.
- While I was helping others, Food supplies were vanishing from nearly all the stores in the area.
(Meanwhile the food in our refrigerator/freezer has now gone bad.)
- Gas supplies in the area are also becoming low and they expect the price per gallon to increase to over $5.00 a gallon by tonight : (
These 3 things never dawned on me at the time since in the past our power has always been restored with in 24 hours.
In my helping out the neighbors I didn't check my finances and spent our
emergency money. Now I need a way to earn money so to Help my family
and my self.
So, I need to make extra Money and I need to make it ASAP.
I don't want Hand-Outs or freebies. I will work for it.
I just need to make the money really fast.
Does anyone need Help with anything? Graphics, a script installed on your
server, or help doing niche research or anything else. I'm totally at a loss
at the moment and I can only work during 09:00am till 3:00pm EST. as I
have no Internet connection at my home because of Ike.
Mainly I will be working for you online while I'm here at work.
So far 2008 has not been good to me with the loss of so many family
members including my Mother and now this. I think I'm starting to loose
faith and the weight on my shoulders right now is really feeling pretty darn
Have a Great Day!
