While we were without power we were living in front of the fireplace up above!

My power was restored last night and I sure was proud to get it back. Many on my electric system are still without power.

I understand we came out pretty lucky. In neighboring Crockett, Obion, and Gibson counties, many are expected to be without power for several more days.

We had my wife's sister and her family at our house last night(their power is out). The temperature got down to 17 degrees last night.

Here is a short flip video I shot yesterday and some pictures also.

Mary, the snow every 10 years would be ok. The ice can remain up north!

Mike - i hope you have power now, We missed all of the ice here in Franlin, but that's par for the course. It is pretty.

Mike,

Just across the river may be even worse. I guess we would suffer like they are.
