I understand that several probably have no power.  I sure hope all are doing ok.  I will be glad for Spring this year.  My thoughts and prayers are with all ..  We also were without power for a time and thankfully it only took a day to get it back and we live in a small rural area.  Good luck to everyone!!

We have been without power since 1:30AM Sunday morning in Nowata.  Come on power. All I want for Christmas is Electric and water.

I never take electric for granted anymore, we were hit with ice back in January, and was w/o for 11 days.  We lived through it, and it made us all a little stronger.  Our place looked like a war zone, as well as our whole city.I am thinking and praying for all of you, your lives will be back to normal before long.  Although, we are still cutting up trees from our ice storm

I have water and gas, and to many animals to go stay somewhere else. I just wonder if you might be a redneck if you have a deep freeze on your front porch, and the rest of your food in ice chests on the porch also.

Last night I saw a beautiful site........
While coming up to the intersection we saw yellow flashing lights as far as we could see down the road. We stopped at the corner ready to turn when one of those big power trucks pulls out and stops in the middle of the road. Then the one behind him comes out and stops to hold the on coming traffic going the other way. Then we got to see all those beautiful power trucks come thu the intersection one by one. There must have been at least 60 or 70 trucks coming into Broken Arrow to give us back our power. It almost brought tears to my eyes as I sat and watched this beautiful thing that was happening right before me. It made me so proud to know that there are so many wonder people in this world that would travel so far to give us back our power so that we can get back to our normal lives. As we sat there watching we were talking about how we could tell those men how grateful we are that they came to help us.
Later that night we had gone out to eat. While waiting for our table some men came in dressed in warm work overalls. We could hear them talking and we knew they were some of those men who had been working on the powerlines. My 2 year old grand daughter walked up to them holding her daddy's hand and said "Thank you for fixing my light's" You should have seen the smile on his face. He said "Your very welcome!"
I know that's not enough to show them how much we feel about the wonderful thing they are doing but it's a start.
Later that night Little Miss Morgan finally got her lights back on. I feel for all those young families out there, it's tuff on those little ones when there lives are turnned upside down.
Hope everyones power is on very soon!!!
Stay warm and Happy Holidays!

  I , too, send thanks for my neighbor.  We could not get out of our back drive.  We have been sharing our power with his family and he felt the need to help remove the downed trees.  My husband has recently had surgery and has not been able to get around very easily.  He was so thankful.
