ICE STORM!!!!

Well, if you've missed me, I'm sorry!  We haven't had electricity since Thursday.  The kids haven't had school since last Wednesday.

Right now our family has driven to Lawton, OK, to eat at the mall and just get away and thankfully we were able to connect to the internet to do a little looking at what is happening outside of our "bubble" in southwest Oklahoma.

It's not looking too promising for us to have power anytime soon.  Tens of thousands (or more) are without power and crews from all over have been sent to our area to help restore the power as quick as possible.  Please pray for all of those who are working so hard - for their safety and strength.

My family is keeping warm by our fireplace and we are cooking on our grill outside and with candles in the oven.  Our house is total electric, so no gas appliances or heat.

This is quick, but just wanted to touch base in case anyone was wondering.  I've got lots of pictures to show when we've got power again!

Oh, I am so glad to read that you are all okay! I wondered where you had disappeared to....I had heard that you all were going to be getting some snow but I didn't realize it was going to be so severe!

I am thankful that you can stay warm in your house and at least have some food to eat and a way to prepare it. I can't imagine going without power that long....

Stay Warm, Stay Well, and I can't wait to see those pictures!!

Big Hug to You!! ((((()))))
