Default Octagon Junkie and SW KY Ice Storm

Hey yall,

Please pray for Andrea (octagon junkie). Her family got hit by that bad ice storm last week--and have been without power for 11 days now. She's been calling me on and off and keeping me updated though. They got a generator at day 5, but still no power as of today.

She did say that power is returning around them and they are hopeful for some in the next couple days. Also, she said the MRE's the nat'l guard handed out are tasty......

not so sure how that will fly around here....

Anyhoo, thanks!

Kim

Awwww, poor Andrea. I know exactly what she's going thru. It sucks sooooo bad. I hope she gets her power back soon, not having meals for that long was one of the hardest things for me. And the sound of all the generators. I hate that sound but loved it at the same time.

Does she have gas or oil heat? Or is she making do without? What about hot water? I missed hot water too. Cold showers suck!

Oh my gosh I'm praying for them. We went without power for about 20 days when Hurricane Frances and Jeanne came through Florida. I can't even imagine having no power and it being so cold. Hopefully the generators will at least keep them warm. It's about 30 here and I have heat and still freezing. I hope they stay warm and have plenty of MRE's to eat.

That's so wild because today out of the blue I thought about her and wondered if she was affected. Poor thing. Kim if you talk to her again tell her she's in my prayers ok?

Ditto! As beautiful a blessing as those generators were, when we finally got power and they were off, that beautiful peaceful silence was a blessing also.

BTW, you had water?

I thought after Rita, in '05, I was going to be totally prepared for the next one, NOT. This year, starting in June, I'm using everything in the freezer and going week to week keeping stuff in the fridge. If I stay, I'm filling every recepticle (tubs, pots, jugs, etc...) with water as well as stocking up on bottled water and batteries. Of course, I realize my doing this will more than likely insure no hurricanes will come this way.

We didn't have any water for several days, 5 or 6 I can't remember. Then when it did come back on we were on a boil water order but didn't have a way to boil water. So we had to find other means. I showered at work. We had filled the tubs full of water but that only got us so far. Oh well. Hurricanes suck but at least it wasn't an ice storm. No way could I deal with the cold for so long with just my fireplace.
