Cool

Casey that's a pretty intense ice storm. I like Alexander, only remember that type of storm while I lived in Toronto, Ontario around the same time and the city was completely shut down as well as airports and essential services. I too hope the power gets back to normal and the families can enjoy the holiday season.

thanks for the concern of everyone here.
We kept the fireplace going and stayed comfortable.

We only experienced a power outage for a relatively short time. The total without power climebd over 600,000 but is now "back" to half a million. There are days-long waiting lists for things like kerosene, other heating fuels, chain saw chains, etc. An emergency generator is worth its weight in gold right now and they are shipping them in by the thousands.

The cleanup is almost unimaginable. My brother works for the local Electric Co-op and they are working 16 to 18 hours shifts every single day. Those guys are heroes.

The National Weather Center is located in Central OK for a reason - all the weather stuff happens here!
This past summer we had record floods while the summer before that experienced record drought. Then we had a mini dust bowl with record winds. Now a record ice storm...do I sense a pattern here?

The yearly tornado epidimic is old news at this point.

Heck we even had a rare inland hurricane form this past Fall dumping almost a foot of rainfall on us in about 18 hours.
I think if we had 2 days in a row of the same weather, everyone would faint - ha!

I'm STILL waiting for Spike Lee to show up with Jesse Jackson and talk about our plight.... still waiting....

Larry the Cable Guy lives about 40 miles from me in Sanford Fl.Can't see him leaving the 80 deg weather here for the frozen tundra of OK.
Hope things get better soon Casey and you and yours have a Merry Christmas
