    I'm so sorry! I haven't had much luck for the beginning of year either, so it can only get better!

    Losing power for 5 days.

    I'm so sorry. 86!

    Good luck next time.

    That would be like us losing power in late July!
    We would have to get into a vehicle and head north!!!

    How did you stay warm?

    I'm sorry you lost them. I hear there was an ice storm in your state. I was reading on here where they are not going to get their power on until the middle of Feb. Again, I'm so sorry.
