We are having a blizzard...they just said our town had ten and a half inches of snow! I don't think we have ever had that much snow and this is suppose to go on all night and through the morning. The winds are really bad too...30 to 40 mph which is why they call it a blizzard...lol. The snow drifts are really bad and there have been alot of roads and highways closed due to those and accidents. My dinning room lights have been flickering a little bit...in this kind of cold I sure don't want to lose my heat! (just had my furnace fixed in time for this too!) Nate is a block away spending the night at a friends..don't want them to lose their lights or heat either. Of course you know how it works...when they go out whole areas are affected.
Also please pray for my sisters and their families...they live in Wichita which is getting alot of freezing rain and sleet...they haven't gotten that much snow yet but are caught in the line between thunderstorms and this winter storm. When this storm line passes a certain point its cold enough to snow...they are right in the mid point. So in some ways they are getting it worse then we are because of the ice. Both my sisters homes at least have fire places that are gas run...so hopefully they can have heat that way if their lights go out. My mom has a fire place too but it would be really hard and dangerous to try to come get us in this ..so please pray we don't lose our lights (heat). thanks.
Its pretty bad out there...I have never been in a blizzard before...I wasn't too concerned until my lights started flickering.. (of course I am staying in the house!)
