Missing in Action~Ice Storm

Well needless to say we finally lost power. Sometime Wednesday night we lost it. Was out of power all day Thursday, Thursday night and it finally came back on around noon today (Fri~Jan 30th). Boy we were just tickled. But my in-laws have been out of power since Tuesday of this week and they don't expect it to be back on till next week. I hate to see anyone without power. My husband took our generator over for them to use.

It will be quite some time before the kids will go back to school. The ice around here is 2 an half inches thick. Just slightly south of us got up to 4 inches of ice. It's not a pretty picture around here. Trees have lost their tops and some so bad they will have to be cut completely down. Which is the case for some of our trees in our yard. The husband has been working two days getting some of them cleaned up. But it will be a long process.

Be Safe and Stay Warm! Hopefully your n-laws will have power soon. I just couldn't imagine being out so long!

Gosh and we in the UK can't cope with just a little bit ice and snow. Hope the weather improves soon and you in-laws power comes back on too.
