A Florida woman who put a 'hot and sexy female' sign in her front yard to try to get her power switched back on after Hurricane Irma has seen her inventive recovery tactics go viral.
Kynse Leigh, 37, was in a Tampa hospital recovering from a kidney and pancreas organ transplant when the hurricane hit her neighborhood in Fort Myers.
When she returned to find it was broken, the mother-of-one put a sign in her front yard pleading for help so that she could move back in and continue to heal from the procedure.
On Sunday, she left a sign in her front yard which read: 'Hot sexy female seeks lineman to electrify her life.'
The message was spray painted on to a large piece of leftover plywood in hot pink. Leigh placed it in front of the fallen trees which the hurricane brought down.
Kynse Leigh, 37, left a large sign in her front yard in Fort Myers, Florida, on Sunday to attract linemen to restore her power which was wiped out by Hurricane Irma
The PPL linemen left their own message on the plywood for Leigh to later find
To spread awareness of her efforts, Leigh, a real estate broker, uploaded a photograph of herself posing next to the sign and shared it on social media.
'Maybe this will work,' she wrote hopefully alongside it.
Within a day, the post was shared more than 1,000 times on Facebook and caught the eye of local linemen who stopped by on Monday to restore the woman's power.
They posed for a photograph next to the sign and left their own message on the sign, writing: 'Power on due to your PPL lineman.'
Speaking to DailyMail.com on Tuesday, Leigh said she posted the sign after hearing that it could take up to two weeks for her electricity to be restored.
In ordinary circumstances, she said she would have waited her turn but because she is still recovering from the operation, she desperately needed power to be able to keep her house clean and cool enough.
'After Hurricane Charlie, I spent two weeks without power but coming out of an organ transplant it's a little more difficult.'
'The heat makes me sick and just being in a clean environment is so important. You can't keep your home clean and keep germs out without power,' she said.
On Monday, a day after she posted her sign, two PPL linemen visited the woman's home to restore her power
