The Ice Storm Cometh

We here in the midwest are battling a horrid ice storm.  The trees are covered with ice and several areas are starting to report power outages.   We’ve still got power, however, my parents and sister are without it.  Leslie (my sis) lives in St. Joe  and reported that she the power box was pulled off the side of her house.  OUCH!  I know this means they will probably be days without power, plus they will have to pay for the repair.   Her husband Jeff works for KCPL. He’s a security guard, but still has to work extra hours through this storm, AND take finals at Midwest Baptist Seminary.   My parents are a bit better off since they have a generator.  They are able to run the furnace and frig, but are without water as they are on a well and don’t have enough energy to run the pump at the same time.

Makes me feel a bit guilty all warm and cozy here.

How is the storm where you are?
