Powerless

There's been a catastrophic ice storm in Tulsa. Lost power the night of Sunday, December 9th. Today is Saturday, December 15th. I still have no power at my house and am staying with the in-laws. Eddie, Oliver, and Annie are being boarded. Elly is with my parents. The electric company says our power won't be restored until Monday night.

I have been to depressed the whole week to do any knitting. Was finally dragged out today by my husband to start Christmas shopping, but would prefer to skip Christmas altogether this year. This has been the worst holiday season ever, and I just want to go home.

You poor thing! I was wondering if you had lost power. Hang in there - it'll be over soon.

You poor thing! Hang in there... as fast as everything can change, it'll all be better soon. Thinking of you!

Oh Emma, I am so sorry. We just got our power back last night and my parents this afternoon. If there is something that I can do, I will do it. I have some booze in my fridge (that is all that I have left in my fridge) but I will share it. Would that help at all?

I am going to just hope that they get it back on sooner than they say.

Oh no! I can't even imagine being away from home during the holidays. Such a helpless feeling...

Here's hoping that you are able to get back into the house shortly and maybe catch a little of the holiday spirit.

That's so tough. I hope things get better soon. Hang in there.

I know it sucks. I've been lucky enough to have never lost power through this but I know my parents power just came back on today and things were really starting to get to them. It will be over soon and it's supposed to be warmer next week. Hopefully you can get home soon and get back to your normal life.

I can't imagine how you can stand it! I am sending you good "power" thoughts, and hopefully your life can get back to normal.

Hopefully by the time you read this, your world will be full of light and heat and your animals will be back in your home.

Cheers--Annie

I know how you feel! I am still without power Monday afternoon, and don't think I can stand another evening wearing 5 layers of clothers, in a house lit with candles, too dark to read or knit. What a nightmare!
