Nance, sounds like you had it bad at your area as well.
Yes I am sick of the winter already, enough is enough.
Yep I guess the globle warming in only at the Pole.

We lost our power around 8 in the evening on Thursday when a 120 foot fir tree at the enighbor's broke off and wiped out the power line. It also blocvked the road so that 3 roads of people were cut off! Strange feeling! They got our power restore yesterday afternoon around 3 PM.

Roz, sounds like you went through the same thing. I am tired of playing pioneer...how about you? LOL!

Then today was freezing fog all day! What's up with the weather? Thought 'global warming' was the catch word of the day! LOL!

That is amazing.
So when you talk to her, tell her that I work at the North store because there is also a South store where I used to work.
I like the North store because it is smaller and friendlier. Bye Rosalyn

So your neice was one of the early ones to be put back on. I think we must have been the last area to get it fixed, also part of 9th st, as well.

Ask your niece if she shops at the 1st alturnative co-op, because that is where I work as head cashier, and I would know her if she does.

Hi Vernonia

Wow you were even worse than we were, our house got down to about 54.
Were are you that you were so long in getting it back, I thought we were way too long.

Well the storm was bad here in Corvallis.
We were without electic for 2 days.
Talk about cold, man alive ,I was feezing.

Trees and electric wires down all over town.

Now I hear we may have some more snow.
Sure wish it would do that for Xmas instead of a week early.

I missed one of my favourite shows,
"MEN IN TREES"

Solong for now got a lot of emails to catch up on and posts as well, without the computer I had WIthdrawles, emoticon

My power went out at 5pm and I had a very surprisingly peaceful evening..other than the house sounding like it was falling apart! I built a fire and cozied up with my dog and a good book but mostly reflected on what did we do before TV? Electricity??
I think I might turn out the lights and do it again real soon! Think what I'd save on my electric bill!
I really would have enjoyed a glass of wine but I've given that up until I lose the weight emoticon

My school is opening late----they are having to check the roofs of the schools to make sure they were safe for students. We already had leaks when it rain.

Lots of down limbs, but not much else in the St. Helens area.

One of the teachers had 2 of her siblings have trees come through their houses. She is heading to one brother to help salvage what they can. (Shelton, WA)

Hope and Pray you are all safe and warm.

dreams come true when you work to get there.

life is not measured by how many breaths we take but by how many moments take our breath away.

So far, mostly wind with rain.
Some flickering of lights, but nothing serious yet.
One gust did rock the duplex. I live in a mobile home duplex, and it already has cracking from the last year's heavy rains. So I am not surprised that it was rocked with just a 35mph wind. Now, what will happen when it really hits later?
