Okay. I know am more politics, geopolitics and anti-jihad in my posting; however I live in the Tulsa Metro area. Two-thirds of the people are without power due to an ice storm.
Okies are not used to cold temperatures of the nature of freezing and just below freezing. Add this to the apparent majority of households/Apartments seemed to all electric without gas heat.
Our family embarked to a motel that had power. That motel told us we were the last reservation and then they would be full.
My honey is a travelling sales lady so me and the grandkid pulled up stakes and travelling with her the next day in Arkansas. It is not freezing in Arkansas.
Just as we were about to leave the motel in the Tulsa Metro area, that motel lost power.
Driving in the area around 8:00 AM it was a view like the movie The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. The sky was grey and the trees were crushed with ice. Limbs were in the streets, on cars and on houses. Then we disembarked for Arkansas.
So here I sit in an Arkansas motel wondering when the power is coming back on in the Tulsa Metro area.
