If you read my sidebar in the "About Me" section you will see that I am from Kentucky. Many of you have heard about the major ice storm that affected our state and my community.
My Aunt Jackie called me today to check on me. She had lunch with Judy Laquidara today. She said that Judy was concerned because I haven't written on my blog in a while. So, I decided that I should pop in and tell you all that I am okay. My family is fine.
It's been a little hectic around here, to say the least. I opened my home to several teenagers whose parents had no electricity and no way to keep their kids warm. We weren't sure we could keep them warm either, but we did the best we could with our gas fireplace, gas hot water heater, and grilling food on the gas grill.
When you go for several days without electricity your house gets a little dirty; floors need to be vacuumed, flashlights and candles every where, and all the stuff you leave out so you can find it when it gets dark, and lots of laundry (towels. Girls use lots and lots of towels). There's not been much time for blogging.
I had teenagers up until last night. Their families finally got electricty after a week. School started back today and I took a road trip to Evansville, Indiana just to get away for the day. I needed it!
I started writing a post about what our governor says is the "worst natural disaster in modern history that our state has experienced." I told my Aunt that I wasn't really sure that my blog readers would want to read about our experience, but maybe I'll finish it and post it anyway. It will be good for me to read it again a few months later to remind myself of what all we went through.
Until then, thanks for the prayers for the people of our state. The prayers are still needed. A lot of my friends still don't have electricty. Some communities have been evacuated because of no water. Temperatures this week have been in the teens and single digits. Warmer weather is on the way, however, this weekend.
