Checking in from Tulsa

We heard on the radio, and read in the newspaper that we made national news. Actually my kids told me that too, but we had no power from Sunday night until late this afternoon. That is almost 5 days of living around the fireplace, trying to read by candle light.

Kaye, I have thought about you so much since that happened to you last spring, I think. Blue green lightning is a bad thing. There were 260,000 homes out of power in Tulsa county alone. The temperature was just right so that the mist froze on the wires and trees, and everything began to break.

I am so glad that we have fireplace - a gas one, since we do not keep wood.

On one evening we saw a bird in the kitchen. My dog caught it, and my husband managed to get it from him. We had to praise him, but what a mess.

I hope the weather hasn't been that bad to anyone else, and that you are all well.

As I look at my roses, I just keep telling myself that they were smaller than that when I bought them.

What a rough week you've had. Sounds like you are a trooper and made it through fine. Glad you and your family are ok.

Good luck Sammy.

RE: Checking in from Tulsa

I'm very glad to hear you made it through safely, and that your power is back on.

RE: Checking in from Tulsa

Thank you, Carla, Taureau, and Petaloid. I am still very tired. It is amazing how dirty that your house can get in a situation like this.

There are still thousands of people who have not had their power restored yet, and it is getting so cold. This is certainly no way to get out of going to school. Our week will be made up the first week of June - a time that I would really like to be outside.
