What Happened to CMNS?

Yes, I know I haven't posted in almost a week. Sorry about that.

You may have been part of the 19 States that experienced one variation or another of the ice storm. Oklahoma, according to news reports, was hit the hardest. I believe that, and I'm glad no one else got it as badly as we did.

I woke up very early Monday morning and noticed the clock radio was off. I figured we had a blackout, but I had no idea of the magnitude. Long story short - you remember in that awful Batman and Robin movie where Ah-nuld Schwarzenegger was trying to freeze Gotham City? His aim was apparently a little off.

Oklahoma got the worst end of a massive ice storm and I was knocked off the grid with no power or phone lines. I don't know what the long-term situation is going to be like - I still have no power at home, but I am able to get through here at work, so regular postings should begin again tomorrow.

I won't dwell on it, but this has been an awful week. Hopefully, things will improve and the snow storm expected this weekend won't knock us out of communication again.

See you tomorrow with more funny!

Yikes! My condolences, buddy! I lost power for about five days in that ice storm that hit Kansas a few years ago. I tried toughing it out for a couple of days, but with the interior temperature below freezing, all I could do when I got home from work was to go straight to bed, with my winter clothes still on, and both cats huddled under the covers with me. Thank goodness a friend from work was able to let me bunk with his family for a little bit!

Wow, that's awful! We've been lucky here in central Indiana so far, but I know it's just a matter of time before we get slammed with the ice and snow as well. :-(

Hang in there, Adam!

Sorry to hear about your troubles, Adam. We usually get plenty of that kinda stuff in Michigan, but this year we've been lucky so far. But I know what a pain it can be!

Post again when you can, we'll be here waiting and ready for more!
