A lot of you have been wondering about the weather. The ice storm is over. There is still a lot of ice on the trees though. The roads are clear, but the grass, parking lots and other items are still covered in sheets of ice. It rained pretty much all day long. It wasn't pouring but it was consistent! Schools weren't shut down today because of the roads....they were shut because they have NO power!!! Almost 500,000 homes have been without power. Right now there is about 150,000-200,000 homes in Oklahoma City alone without power! Can you believe that? We have been blessed that our power only went out for a few hours while we were sleeping. My sister-in-law Danielle and her husband are staying at my in-laws because there power is out! The power company says it could take upt to 10 days to restore power. Some people have had power...then lost it for a day...then gotten it back for a day....then lost it again!! Hopefully the ice will melt and the trees that have fallen will be cleaned up and people can have power again!
BUT....we are expected to have about 2-5 inches of snow this coming weekend!! Wait a minute....I thought I moved away from Utah :)
