I'm actually quite surprised that we still have electricity. I was surprised that I got all of the laundry done, and we still had electricity. I fixed lunch, and we still had it. I took a nap, and we still had it.
After I woke up from my two-hour luxury nap, I checked out the KCCI site, and found out that nearly 300,000 customers in Iowa were without electricity. They are setting up emergency shelters, as it could be days before some people get power back. Poles snapped, trees on power lines, big, huge mess.
I keep saying: "We are lucky!"
Let's hope the luck holds out...
