“Any [tree trimming] we did previously definitely helped this time,” he said. “Hopefully everything will stay quiet.
“If we can just keep the moisture away, we’ll be in good shape.”
The icy conditions also stopped 18-wheel trucks from making grocery deliveries this weekend, and most of the grocery stores in Mineral Wells were without eggs, bread, milk and other essential grocery items.
Metro Food Store manage Ronnie Davidson said his store was out of bread by Friday.
“It was a madhouse here on Friday,” Davidson said Monday morning. “People rushed in and bought pretty much anything they could get their hands on.
“We sold a lot of firewood, and we ran out of bread, milk and eggs and main essentials like those.”
Davidson said a bread truck was supposed to make a delivery by early Monday afternoon.
“We are on the list of deliveries,” he said.
