Tuesday in the middle of his living room at his Yankeetown home — what’s left of it, that is.
Twenty-seven inches of water swept through Ralph Dixon’s home in Hurricane Hermine, destroying furniture, lamps, kitchen utensils and other items that make up a life.
It’s hot in the living room. The air condition and power are out. Dixon, 84, sweated while he packed up what was salvageable. What can be saved will be put inside a portable storage unit he had delivered and placed in his driveway.
