    I was just complaining to my wife that the power never goes out any more and the kids won't enjoy those times (I always thought it was fun when I was a kid).

    But, three days? That would be too much. I need to be careful what I wish for.

    Sorry about your electricity. We get ice storms, wind storms, etc. here in Ok. Ever since we got a generator we haven't lost power.

    Is that Irony????? [​IMG]

    That was a BAD storm and I've seen pictures here in Southside VA what the storm has done to you all up that way. It's terrible! We were without power for a whole hour and a half or so here, so I am not complaining a bit.

    Hope they get things back up there soon for you and everyone else. [​IMG]
