Ice Storm

So, our corner of the world had a horrible ice storm Thursday into Friday.  We are very fortunate.  There are "state of emergency"-s in many of the towns and counties very close to us.  There are 200,000 people in our area without power.  We have only had brief power interruptions.  Very, very fortunate.  My parents have been staying with us while they wait for their power to return.  According to the weather forecast, it will be awhile before we thaw out.

We are also very fortunate because we were able to see 4 friends today who we haven't seen since October 2007.  It was a wonderful day and London greatly enjoyed meeting them.

I am feeling blessed!!!  It is a wonderful place to be!!!

Glad that all is well in your house at least. Awful for all those people to be out of power though - hope everyone is staying warm somehow.
