It just came back on earlier tonight. We were hit hard by that bad ice storm that swept though the mid part of the country.

Candles, oil lamps, and a battery powered radio for 3 days! Whew! Glad to have the power back!

Fortunetly, I have gas heat, and the pilot lights were already lit...so I was warm.

But still...its easy to take lights and electric appliances for granted...until the power goes off!

For those who dont have heat, it was a much bigger issue for them. They couldnt go to homeless shelters, because THE SHELTERS had no electricity or heat.

A couple of large churches in the area that somehow were spared the loss of power opened their doors as a shelter for those in need.

I've been watching the news and can't imagine! I do not like being cold... I'm use to losing power down here in Florida with all the lightning and storms. Glad you pulled through D28

Glad you made it through. I've been (un)fortunate to have lost power for days up in Ohio after an ice storm and down in Florida after Hurricane Charlie went through my backyard. If I was to pick which one I'd prefer it'd have to be down in Florida. I'd rather burn up without air conditioning than to freeze my buns off.

I'm glad you're OK.

Your iPod was fully charged before the power went out, Right?

Glad you're ok, D29guy! This is no time of year to be without heat!!! Was listening to the news today and sounds like many who lost electricity due to recent ice storms will be without for quite some time... hoping all stay safe.

Actually, I've never owned an Ipod.

I did have a battery operated AM-FM radio, and a battery operated portable CD player though. So I had music.

Mostly though, I just pulled out one of my acoustics and made a whole lot or "home made" music.

Picking to the light of candles....not bad.
