I just spent the last 3 days without electric due to the ice storm that came through on Saturday night. We had no electric, and no running water because we have a well pump that runs on electric. No way to flush the toilets that was very bad. Cooking on a camping stove hoping my food does not go bad. I actually went outside and put snow in a pan to melt it to try to get water to flush that toilets. Since we did not want to use up our drinking water we bought at the store for that. The temp inside the house at one point got down to 48 degrees. At night the house was black. I read my Bible by candle light. It was hard on me going through this. I don't even like camping LOL! On Sunday morning it even knocked out the cell phones. They came back on later in the afternoon. Trees were down all over the place! News reports were saying that they may not have power back till next week, which did not make me feel any better. But praise The Lord it came on about an hour ago! I was so happy I burst into tears when I saw that fist flicker of light come on!

It's bee a while since we didn't have power. We usually have a generator, but some low life stole it a week or so ago.

I decided to go to work today, and the heater is acting up in our building.
It is absolutley freezing in here, but you did it for 3 days.
The Lord certainly is looking after you, Merry Christmas!
Days like this I'm reminded of what our soldiers in WWII did in Bastogne..
Shell bombings, frost bite, foot amputations, digging fox holes while getting bombed.
