I can tell you that 52 hours without power SUCKS! No technology, OMG! we should have our power back on soon though. the President actually declared us a National Disaster, i’ve been called worse though! 😀
We dodged a bullet in Chicagoland… in my area (south suburbs), most of the precipitation was rain, and it didn’t go below freezing until afterward. Then it snowed a bit Monday night – just a dusting compared to the north suburbs, though.
thanks for the well wishes guys. i’m checking forum and e-mails from good ol’ McD’s! town near us has power but still none for us country folk, YET. as i left the house an hour ago, they had crews blocking the road (YAY!) the 3 inches of ice we got here in SW MO knocked a lot of trees and power lines down. there are still entire towns here with no power. i have some AMAZING pics if u all would like to see them. (when i can dl them that is)
I used to live in Hazlewood MO, I had never seen a real thunderstorm untill I moved there, never had to deal with the ice and cold when I lived there though, sounds like misery, not Missouri 😉 Keep Warm!
WE HAVE POWER!!! Matt just went home at 5pm and said we have power, yay! Bad news is our well had a main pipe burst. At least we have heat now. That’s the best news we’ve had in days! See y’all tonight!
