Tulsa is in the midst of an ice storm. Approximately two inches of ice has fallen. Districts are without power meaning nearly 100,000 customers have no electricity. I guess no The Price is Right today!
It's been a night of interruption. A small power plant sets two blocks from our house. Transformers exploded 13 times (I counted) over the night accompanied by the rockets blue glare....not how the Star Spangled Banner exactly described. We have broken limbs falling all around us. One reason is we have 26 trees in our yard. I don't mind it when we lose limbs as long as they don't land on the house. Ice storms are one of God's ways of trimming my trees.
I like these kinds of days/nights. Disruption of the usual isn't all bad. Yes, I dressed by candle light this morning at 5:30. That was the time of the 13th explosion so I just got up. I started a fire in the fireplace to have some portion of heat, lit a couple of candles so see by, and was on the road by 6:15 with nowhere in particular to go.....except for coffee.
I've learned this morning of several others without power. Some are transferring their household to stay with close friends. These are great days! How fun!
Enjoy your day. It's looking like it's going to be another good one!
