I prayed real hard to send some of our weather your way so that y'all should not be deprived of some of the white stuff with a little nip in the air to get you in the Holiday spirit.

Come on everybody. Let's keep praying and help them have a white Christmas. :D

P. S. Your Welcome :D

Someone summed up winter driving in the Cobra perfectly as:

"a hazard at best"

We've got about 8 inches up here in Boone! The skiing was great up at Sugar Mountain last night! They had 10 inches at the top. Snow is great, as long as I don't have to drive my car in it! :D laters

Think of winter driving as an open track session (spins and slides) but at much slower speeds:D

I hope I never see ice again...

5+ days/105 hours and counting with no power.. :( They say that only 90% of those WIHTOUT power MAY get it back on by Wednesday evening. :eek: :eek:

Our fridge is leaking something nice, its 42 degrees INSIDE in the mornings to which the fire never warms the place above 50, and I've read every magazine, played every board game we own. Everything is electric, so we can't cook, or take a hot shower.

:rotf:

/end rant

I can't help but laugh at the whole situation. It's just one of those things where ya think, what's next? :D Oh well, had to share, even though it sucks, but laugh with me, not at me.. ;)

Spiffy,

Get you a kerosene heater and put it in one room and you will at least have one room to stay warm and toasty in. I was thinking of getting a generator for back up. :)

I had thought about that, but that thought died when I saw the lines at the grocery stores (Wally World wasn't even open - no power). Our neighbor brought us some wood and 2 mornings of 40 degrees inside drove us from our place and I think we're going to stay with friends until our juice is flowing. :) Judging by the spaghetti strands for power lines, that might be a while. Besides, a lot of people have it worse than us, and I can only imagine what they're going through.

i feel for you... we got ours back sunday afternoon.. and like you said, the 40 degree indoors was what drove us out too. what is that water on the floor anyway? i just put towels down. good luck!!

haha, no telling, but its not clear.. :rotf: :rotf:

I know we're gonna have to empty out the entire fridge. Carol's nice and expensive Healthy Choice's and my many pounds of steak, chicken, and ground beef are, I'm sure by now, rancid. We haven't opened it since the power has gone out so most of it is contained, but it wants to get out.. :rotf: Clean up is going to be worse than the cold, since we re-arranged the furniture around the fireplace, the fridge, and my many burnholes in the carpet from jabbing many a log in the fireplace.

My sister said her home insurance covered up to $500.00 worth of food due to the misfortune. Check with your insurance company to see if they will do the same for you.

Wow, sure you don't live down the street from me? ;)

Any damage to your house/cars? Looks like your fence took a hit and your camper missed a big one. Glad you got power back, I got mine yesterday afternoon.

Edit: Oh wait, I see where something hit the corner of your house, looks like it tore off a corner of your roof?

Edit Edit: I falled speeling in sk00l.. :rotf: /end sarcasm

Yes, the answer to the question is, "Cobra is fine, was sitting in her garage the whole time."

My lot is 300 feet across the front and it's absolutely full of pine trees cut from the ice storm. 74 trees in all.
