Since my last post things here in Tulsa got worse and now are getting a little better. At one point there were about 250000 homes and businesses without power. I heard a stat that only 1 in 3 households had power. The term war zone has been over used but there really isn't another way I can think of to describe it. It seems the worst hit areas were north of I44. I've seen many houses and cars damaged by trees. There are still several streets that you can't drive down because of fallen trees and power lines. I was one of the lucky ones and have had power through it all. The only inconvenience I have suffered is that I don't have cable or internet. I got off pretty easy.
The strangest part of all of this is when you're out and about at night. The city is really dark and somewhat creepy. Makes me happy that I can legally conceal a weapon. I won't be going anywhere without one until all of this is taken care of. There's no way some low lifes aren't taking advantage of the newly available dark places to hide.
From what I hear we are in for about 5 inches of snow Friday night and into Saturday. That should put an interesting twist in things.
Until I get my internet back I guess I'll be posting from my blackberry. That's enough for now. My thumbs are about to fall off.
