Where have I been lately?

If you have been wondering what happened to me, this is the story: We had a big ice storm hit Kentucky last week and we were without power from Tuesday until this afternoon. We also lived without water for a couple of days. I have learned to appreciate the gifts we have in these modern times but am now wishing we could live "off the grid". Also we noticed that aside from the cold (it got down to the mid-forties in our house) it was very nice to not have all the noise and distractions that we normally live with: computers, video games, TV, etc.

Anyway, things are back to normal now. The kids played video games and watched a couple movies today. We watched TV this evening and now here I am on the computer. Old habits die hard.

This part of Kentucky got hit especially hard. Here are some photos of around us. We were luckier than most people in our neighborhood. Most lost many more limbs or even whole trees in this storm.
