It’s a disaster

That’s right Oklahoma is a disaster area. Some of Tulsa looks as if a bomb was dropped on it. It’s really sad because so many heirloom trees have been lost due to the ice.

I’m blessed because my family is safe and sound. We have lost only one small tree. It’s the one we call the bird bush. The poor thing is leaning and uprooted.
We are without power and our house is very cold but we didn’t have trees falling on the roof as others have.

I’ve heard numerous stories at work including a fatality. It’s really made me aware of how blessed we are to be safe and sound tonight.

Keep the firefighters and the folks working on our power lines in your prayers. We are thankful for those folks who have traveled from all over the US to help out.

Yuck. I am glad to hear ya'll are okay - been thinking about you. I will certainly keep your part of the world in my prayers. It's good to hear about the brave and generous people that pop up in times of need.

I've learned that the most important thing when trying to stay warm is cover the head and the feet with many hats and many socks. Just a tip. :)

Been thinking about you Milly. My friends from Edmond also lost their electricity.. fortunately we only got about a 1/4" of ice hear.. 50 miles north they really got hit hard with 90% power outage in St Joesph, MO. Here's hoping that things quiet down the rest of th winter!
