Ice storm 2007

Man does this weather suck! over 500k people without power is what i am hearing...thats in Oklahoma alone. I imagine this has impacted some of the surrounding states as well.
My power went out Sunday morning about 3:00 am and has been off since. And no internet! I do have a generator so i can run the pellet stove for heat, the TV, a couple of lamps and the refrigerator.
Fallen trees everywhere with 1/2" of ice on everything. It took me an hour to get my truck thawed so i could drive it. Luckily all my trees are relatively small so i had no damage from fallen limbs.
How are others doing in this situation? Damage? Hope power is restored soon too all!
What an eye opener, the simple things we take for granted in this day and age, next time i pay the electric bill i will write "thank you" on the comment line.
However painful it is though, my 10 year old boy is getting an education no one could ever teach him, this experience has really opened his eyes. Last night as we sat at the dinner table eating our cold sandwiches (electric cook stove in the house) by candle light, he said, "it was hard to live back when they didn't have electric hu" and I knew his wheels were turning and would continue to turn with each daily task he tackled with no power to do it. Anyway, thats the bright side i guess.

Yeah lucky for me in Michigan I only have rain for now. But as soon as it goes below freezing I will be parked at home going no where.
