The power came on Friday afternoon and we were able to watch a movie that night. Our little house was pretty crowded, but warm and cozy.
Saturday was pretty much the same only Jesse and Bo and the GGs played on the four-wheeler. The dogs seemed to enjoy all the excitement. Jesse ditched us Saturday night for a birthday party with friends. The rest of us watched Seven Brides for Seven Brothers or as GBN2 says, "Seven Bwuthahs for Seven Bwides." You should hear her sing the "Sabine Women" song.
Sunday we were all tired of being in the house. Tired of the close quarters, although the GGs loved "camping out" in the floor. Bo and Sara checked on their house that afternoon and power was on. They packed up the kids and blankets and headed home. Toby, Jesse and I headed to town just to get out for a little while. The roads have been clear – it is the power lines and trees that are a problem.
This morning, I still do not have internet and it may be a while yet. I am at Bo’s office. How would you like your mom to show up at your work place and beg internet. Many people in Duncan are still without power. People in Marlow and other places to the north of us can expect more days without power. News reports show power companies from all over OK and TX have descended on the area and are working hard to restore power. It is a mess. I took some photos on my way to town this morning. Keep in mind that this storm hit last Thursday, and things are still frozen. frozen fence
Notice the trees. Notice the power lines. Power lines are still sagging, but in some places they snapped poles completely. Schools are closed today. It is pretty rough for some people. I feel like we have been very lucky with our little house, but after living in NM where power outages were a regular occurrence, well, you just plan better. But I am missing my internet.
