The power went off yesterday (12-11-07) at about 5am. We still had no power. In fact the whole town was out (Savannah, MO)
We have about an inch off ice. Temp right now is 25 degrees. In side our house is 49. (brrrr) We stayed at my wifes grandfrathers house. He has a propane heater so we stayed warm and listened to my radio for most of the night.
This morning, the power is on here where I work. Unfortunately, the server is down so, we can't do anything anyways. But we are here.
I have quite a few pictures at home that I will post when I get power again.
For those of you that are wondering.......I had plenty of light.
Yeah, I saw where Iowa and Mo took it hard with that storm. Hope you and the family are OK?
Here in central IN we had 60 deg yesterday, today 35. You know what they say... stick around, it will change pretty soon!
Good luck to ya.
We are on Day 4 of no power. Most of the town has power now. The internet here at work was down so I couldn't update this thread. We are still warm and doing fine. My street has about 5 houses on it and all are out. Everyone around us has power though. So, I have a feeling we just got put further down on the priority list.
I talked to one of the guys on our street and he said that he thought that after they got the power back in our neighborhood, a transformer blew. Bummer. Yesterday I got off work early because the power company shut off their whole grid since the ice was melting off the lines.
We got hammered her at the Lake of the Ozarks, with a lot of outages. I'm in the country and have Coop rather than Ameren UE. I was down for only 3 hours, but some here are going on their 5th. day without juice.
Nothing here in the Loo (yet), although we are supposed to get several inches of snow Sat-Sun. I learned my lesson last year (Nov 06) after the big ice storm we had here, and we were without power for 4 days. Bought a BIG generator and transfer switch panel. It will power 80% of the house.
Got to use it not long after that too, in January when we got hit with the second wave. Had the only house within several blocks with heat and electricity for 3 1/2 days. And boy did it feel GOOD! :biggrin:
