We have POWER!!!
After 60 hours without electricity we FINALLY have power again!!! I never thought I'd appreciate a light and heater as much as today, but boy I tell ya... I'm LOVING THEM NOW!!! Turns out our neighbor's tree was the culprit, putting enough weight on the power line below it to freeze it together with another one causing a short circuit (my layperson's way of telling it anyway...). The tree crew butchered her tree so hopefully that won't happen again. Now we have a snow storm coming and hopefully the rest of the county will also have power restored before the bitter cold hits. We Kansan's just don't do cold very well! Not prepared like the northerners who withstand hundreds of inches of snow and much, much colder temperatures. Maybe you folks are smarter and don't plant the trees under the power lines!
