Ice Storm and Cold Temps of the year 072007-05-28 13:42:15dplester

Looking back on the early part of 07, I wonder just how we managed to get to where we are today this memorial day. Jan. 12 brought on some of the worst days that I can remember short of my childhood days of the late 40's when ice storms seem to be a regular winter item to deal with. This past Ice storm and cold weather makes you realize just how dependent you are on electricity and the comforts of life today. I never thought I would see the day that I would struggle to get to Wal-Marts for just a hot cup of coffee and to buy a bottle of water to keep going, but it happened in Neosho, Mo. I hope we don't have to face such a thing again. No Heat, No water, No lights, just the two of us at home and 4 small dogs. Makes for a close family. God Bless America.
