It sounds like the whole middle of the country is under ice. It started raining here last night and it has been raining, sleeting, and snowing ever since. Part of the channels on my satellite TV are out but I do have power. I don't watch TV much anyway but I would like to see the local news and weather but that is what I can't get. DEx called this morning to tell me that all of the beautiful old trees in his yard are GONE - lying on his roof, his garage, his yard, his alley, and his street. He lives in Kansas; it is not quite that bad here. I did enjoy watching both of the dogs fall off the porch this morning. :cool-dog: I am inside, it is warm, I finished wrapping Christmas presents today, and I made a big pot of soup for tonight. I hope all of you are in and warm and safe.
