Hi all,

Got electricity back on Thursday afternoon about 4:30. We were down 44 hours. Were very lucky....some have been getting power back through this week. Friends and co-workers in Kentucky are gonna have to wait till March

Linemen are coming in from all over the country...Oklahoma, Georgia, and from all points south in our state of TN.

Trees, power poles, and lines are everywhere. Last count I heard was 1100 poles in this county and 2000-2500 in three KY counties.....all on the ground.....

People are coming from KY, IL, and MO.....they are out of gas, food, water, and short on patience. Feel so sorry for them.

And the one thought running through my mind and a hot topic of discussion at work is, "What if this had been the big earthquake we are expecting?"

Stay safe all and hope KY friends will be back soon.

Considering Lincoln County for a possible move in two years. I would appreciate any advice on the area. Trying to get a posting to the Huntsville area but want to live in TN.

Thanks!

Hello all,
I'm in North-West Alabama, not far from the Tennessee line. Grew up in Memphis, then Perry County TN. Hope the weather doesn't get too intolerable further north. We are just under a winter watch here. Expecting sleet, freezing rain and snow. But hopefully not much if any. Take care, Shannon

Default Info on Giles county

Hi all,

we're currently living in Germany, but we want to move back to the States within the next year. We have looked around, trying to find a nice place to live, and were wondering if Giles county, and Pulaski especially is one of these places.
Any input is appreciated!
Thanks

Bryan and Gudrun

We looked in Giles county at some property about 5 years or more. There was stuff out there, don't know what property prices are doing now. Pulaski is a pretty good sized town - a number of big box stores. They seem to get more rain than we do. Like everyone else, the economy is not doing that well there compared to recent years, but you have access to the I-65 corridor if you have to commute to work. Nashville might be too far, but Huntsville is just down the road.

Regards,
Pat

Thanks for your reply! It's really hard to figure out where you want to live when you're 5000 miles away.

Native of West Tenn, moved to Mid Tenn as a child. Lived in Henderson, Carroll, Obion, Decatur, and Rutherford Counties. Now spending winters in Wilson County, girlfriend lives in Lewis County. If it's west of the plateau, I'm probably familiar with it. It's gotten big and crowded over the years, but it's still home.
