Power to the People

As you may have heard read, Oklahoma is in the midst of a winter storm, and much of that is in the form of ice. In Byng, we got quite a bit more ice than was forecast, up to 3/4 of an inch. One result of this is that we are among thousands of customers in the area without electricity.

We were reasonably comfortable last night, since we have propane wall furnaces in each bathroom, but since Abby is so sensitive to the cold, we might check into a motel tonight if the situation remains the same. Abby and I are both at work today.

  1. Nice photo.
    My parents & my sister’s family lost power (east of Seminole) yesterday evening… I’m about to call & check up on them again.

    Here in Central Texas, it stopped raining *before* it got cold. It’s in the mid-30s right now, so I think we have little danger of ice.

    Good luck to all of you in OK.
