Thanks to those who helped us weather the storm

Last week was challenging, by anyone’s measure.  Power outages and dangerous roads created headaches that we all had to deal with.  No one was immune to the effects of the wicked, wintery weather.

Even The Central Virginian, which prides itself in getting the newspaper out on time each week, was forced to produce it a day later – and dedicated staff here at the paper came in to make sure it was done, despite the fact that they had no electricity at home.

In this community, in times of difficulty, you can always count on many people to go above and beyond to take care of others and their needs.  Neighbors helping neighbors remove trees and branches from their yards, hauling off spoiled food, checking on each other during the outages.  That’s what makes Louisa County such a great place in which to live.

We thank all the hardworking crews at Virginia Department of Transportation, Rappahannock Electric Cooperative, Dominion Virginia Power and Central Virginia Electric Cooperative, and the many power company workers who came from out of state and other areas in Virginia to face the dangerous and difficult task of repairing broken lines and poles, cutting trees off downed lines and replacing key equipment.
