The storm had stop, the one good thing about this storm ( if you can call a storm good,) was that it didn't get on the roads, and you could still get around. So My husband, went back to work, and I kept the home fires burning . to pass the time, I took pictures, read my bible more , then I had been, and went for walks , to check on mom,
One Day everyone left for the day, and the lights came on. so I walked down to see how thing were at mom's , and on my way back , the sheriff drove up with the National Guard, checking on everyone in our county.
they were checking to see if we needed any thing , before the next storm got here! That was a first for me. Then the power went off again! we had it for 2 hours, when everyone came home , that nite , I don't think they believed me, when I told them what had happen that day!
well the other storm did hit , and hard but it was snow and it covered the ground fast ,
but it didn't last long ,
on the day that power came one , I went to bed and covered up my head , I had had enough!
but the power did come on , and we have a lot to be thankful for , the waterlines still work,
we had wood heat!
well now it is clean up time, and get ready for the next one , they say is coming in Feb.
Thank you for going with me on my journey,
Blessings to you all!

The days weren't that bad, because if the sun was shining!
The first 3 days we ( there were 3 of us working ) would see if we could it to the highway, we live way back from it, it didn't take us long , before we came to our first stop in the road. Saturday we worked for 3 hours cutting up trees to get to the highway, and we had to do this for 3 days cutting our way out, and it was kind of spooky doing it , you had to watch out for falling tree limbs, or the whole tree, the wind would start to blow, and the ice on the limbs would play a tune,
But when the sun went down, you would try to get things set before it got dark.
We would cook the food on the wood stove , a would light candles and listen to the raido, it was just like the Walton's
Didn't get alot of sleep, had to keep the Fire going. One night a louded crash woke us up, one of the trees fell on our house , But Thank The Lord no damage was done!

An monster of and ice storm came, and covered everything!
Saturday morning when we got up,it was a new world. The ice had covered all the trees and powerlines , and it just kept a coming ! Kept baring down putting more and more ice on until snap , down they came on at a time and then 2 or 3 at a time, and the wind was no help! then the power lines started to fall, and there went the power to the house, and there you are in the Dark and helpless, or so you think! We today are so hooked on the man made power that when it goes out , we feel that our lifes have stoped, no TV, pc, no play station, no phone, no way to cook , clean , no BATHROOM! We are so hooked that we have forgotten about the only Power that really matters here, God's Power!
When I saw the Trees bending over from the weight of the ice and the look of them, it brought to mind that this is what sin will do to you, weight you down!
At night the noise of the falling trees was so loud , and wouldn't stop!
*more on Friday!

8 days and no power! We knew that it was coming, and knew it would be bad, but didn't know it would be as bad, as it got!
The storm, didn't just get one state, it took a few more , and there are some who still don't have power to this day! It hit a alot of people hard, and not just people , it hurt alot of animals, and the wildlife, and it hurt the trees the most! This is the first time we have ever seen an ice storm that has taking so many trees down.
I want to thank all the people that were and are out there working too get the power back on, they put their lifes on the line , to get the lines back up so we can get our lives back online!
The storm stared on Friday nite, first the rain came , then it turn to ice, it came down hard and fast, and by morning , ya just knew it would be a different world out side !
And that is where, my story starts , and I will tell you in a few days,

My child, come sit with me!
I've been where you are!
Leave your cares with me!
I just want to thank my blog friends for putting up with my mood that I have been in. I let the worries of this world , not reading the word, and not feeling good , get me down!
But I feel a change coming on, went to bed last night sick, woke up at midnite and couldn't go back to sleep, so I got my Bible out and started to read! the book of Acts, it felt good to get back to it!
Everyone have a very BLessed Day!
