Ice, ice, baby!
After checking up on the status of our power, and hearing it was going to be Friday before it came back on, I seriously considered braving the roads to head to my parents house, which had never lost power on the other side of the county. Then, a ray of sunshine in the form of a Duke Energy truck could be seen in front of our house. Those wonderful men told us it would be a few hours at the most. It was less than 2 hours, and power was back! I've never been so happy to have electricity in my entire life! Power outages during the summer are easy to deal with if they're short in duration, but winter? No thanks!
So now, here we are...power back on, it's all warm and toasty inside, I'm on my full charged laptop and not pecking away on my phone. I can safely say in my 35 years of living in this area, I don't remember any winter storm being this bad, and I hope we don't have another one any time soon. There are still so many people without power; our county was the hardest hit in Indiana. The low tonight is 2 degrees, and I hope those still without power will be okay.
