Hurricane Irma Scam Alert
We were advised by Georgia Power that several customers are being called by scammers identifying themselves as employees of Georgia Power. The scammers are advising the victims two things:
1. You can pay an extra fee too have your power cut on earlier if you are still without power
2. If you have a past bill due or negative balance you have to pay upfront to Georgia Power to have you power cut back on.
Please know this is a SCAM and is NOT how Georgia Power operates in anyway. We appreciate Georgia Power for alerting us and all the power companies and contractors for working around the clock with little rest to get us all back up and running. ... See MoreSee Less

Ok folks the power is still out in many locations here which is causing traffic lights to be out or flashing. Please know for any veteran or new drivers that when the light is out or flashing you treat said intersection as a four way stop. Please be patient and take your turn as if it was a four way.
Please know that power crews are working hard to get us all back on the grid so we can get back to our routines. ... See MoreSee Less

Now that the storm is somewhat past us especially the strong winds the power companies will be working as quickly and safely as possible to get your power back on. We DO not know when all power will be restored but we do ask that you please DO NOT call 911 to report or ask when your power will be on. Please call your power company for this details.
Our plan is to assist the power companies anyway possible so we can get your power back on. Please note that we cannot assist with trees on private property unless it is an emergency.
Please be patient because all emergency workers and companies are doing the best we can to keep you safe and with power. ... See MoreSee Less

We should not have to say this but if you come to an intersection and a deputy advises you to go a route other than where you were headed you better do so. We are not going to let you drive under hot power lines for any reason. Get an app that will take you another route. And if you take the chance of going under those hot power lines just know we will not risk our lives to save you because you are ignorant and don't know an alternate route to your destination.
Trust us when we say this is very dangerous and you need to find a place to stay so no one gets hurt ... See MoreSee Less
