    My BIL works in the area; he said the building they're working on had the windows blown out of it. It was a huge explosion.
    The report I read an hour or so ago said that the gas may have been leaking for weeks. Saw a video of the explosion taken from a security camera across the street... I'm amazed that everybody didn't just die.

    Yay! Our power's back on! Only took KCP&L four hours (Last time, it took four days.)

    Built a fire in the outside chiminea and heated some milk so the boys could have hot cocoa, then hot water for the Beloved's Tension Tamer tea, then I made some Cowboy Coffee for me. The cocoa and the tea were good, anyway....

    Everybody else who got caught up in Winter's double-header OK?

    Lots of ice here, but our power didn't go out..... This disappointed my daughter....she loves "camping out" in the living room with the flashlights.

    Our lights flickered, but fortunately my husband and I are both home today with no plans to go anywhere. In a few hours it will be shoveling time. Because we live in a fairly new neighborhood, there aren't too many trees around that are big enough to take down power lines, so though there is a metric ton of snow just in our yard, thus far that's all it's amounted to. I did switch on the gas fireplace just in case.

    What the heck. I just turned around ... it's snowing again. How many years are we going to get snows like this before it's no longer an anomaly?

    Hell, we didn't even have a winter last year. They said on the news that this last little spit of snow will put us over the record.

    Got three boys who hate to shovel snow... wanna borrow 'em?

    LOL. Three teenage boys showed up at my door last week after Round 1, wanted to shovel my driveway. I asked how much, they wanted an offer. I offered $24. They turned it down. Well, the ringleader did; the other two looked at him incredulously. Pretty strange as it would have taken them about 15 minutes, which works out to a rate of $32/hour, tax free, each. Ah well. They'll learn soon enough.

    True, last winter didn't seem to happen, but the two before that we had these monster snows.
