More ice on the way!

I'm not sure what Kansas has done to deserve this kind of treatment, but we've received another batch of freezing drizzle and rain today, and there's more coming! What's up with that?!

There have already been a number of accidents in Wichita, and Ron called me from work and said that since I'm not working today, there's no reason for me to have to get out, and I shouldn't. The roads are too icy, covered in black ice, and people are driving as if they either don't know it's icy or they don't know how to drive on it (either way, it's a terrible excuse).

Please pray that no one is killed or severely injured in this storm, and that no more people lose power.

Eleven states sent electrical workers to help restore power here from the first storm that hit a week ago today, and most of those crews are still here, travelling in and parking their "convoys" of 10-15 trucks all in a line with their yellow lights flashing. If this keeps up, they may not be going home for a few more weeks!

A big thank you to the crews from Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, Missouri, Nebraska, Colorado, and others who've been here helping us, in addition to the crews already in Kansas! (I'm not sure where the other crews are from.) Thank you, and may God bless you richly!
