Many kept Lemon residents online in storm

I live above Lemon Reservoir and waited for the electricity and phone to go out during the storms last week. They stayed on, and my neighbors understand this is quite a feat.

I want to thank La Plata Electric for keeping the electricity on, Qwest for keeping the phones working, La Plata County Road and Bridge for clearing the roads and avalanches below the dam that locked us in, Boyce Vance for clearing our private subdivision roads, and Leonard Graham for digging out the house and car so I could get to work on Saturday to help my home-health patients who needed me.

Oh, and a big thank you to Mother Nature for providing the precipitation and adventures.
