Ice Storm of 09

Posted on January 30, 2009 at 6:36pm 7 Comments

76 hours without electric and heat. After the first 24 hours it ceased to be an adventure. We began to worry about pipes freezing and food in the freezer not freezing. We are in south central Missouri, about 12 miles north of the Arkansas line. We got about 2-3 inches of ice and the damage is tremendous. We have so many trees broken...many beyond saving. Unknown yet what damage if any it has done to the roof or siding. We feel fortunate no large trees fell directly onto the house. It sounded… Continue

Thanks so much for the warm welcome, Alma.

I tried to reply to your comment earlier today, but had some technical difficulties. If you received my earlier message, I apologize for duplicating the effort.

I just signed up on Saturday for this adventure and I haven't had time to investigate all it has to offer. I appreciate the heads-up about the Midwest Group and will check into it.

Interesting coincidence, my daughter and I will be taking my parents on a road trip to Montant this summer. My dad was stationed in Great Falls, Montana when he returned from Korea in the 50's. He has always wanted to return for a visit, so we decided to take them up there while they have good health and can enjoy the trip. I've never been there and look forward to it. We are also going to Yellowstone and Mount Rushmore. What an adventure it should be.

I miss my son a lot and can understand how you miss your kids too. My oldest son is going to college near Cincinnati, OH and I only see him in person 3 or 4 times a year. He plays baseball for his college, so we do get the chance to see him in Springfield, MO when they play Drury. They also play in Rolla and St Louis sometimes. Other than that, it's a visit in the Summer and one at Christmas.

I look forward to talking to you again. Thanks again for the welcome.

I'm sorry, got a little confused with all of the welcome notes from everyone. Got mixed up! Yes, I don't miss trying to get around in the snow, miss seeing it though. I do have to look Theodosia up on the map though, not familiar with that one. I have an idea. Pretty in southern area but not with your ice you had! j

Hi Alma
Summersville is located south of Houston on Hwy.17 or north of Mtn. View. Alley Springs State park is also close to us. My longarm machine is a Gammill Classic Plus, her name is Peggy Sue. We make great music together.

I would love to have a stash like that! Something to strive for, aye? I didn't realize we have a specific group in the blog, know you can join any. See you grew up in SW Michigan, I in SE - town called Temperance, just north of Toledo. As they say, it's a small world....j

That really does sound like fun, we will have to keep in touch. We plan to come down the second week of Oct, if all goes well with economy etc. We have been coming down for about 20 years, about every other year. That was before the interstate took you right down and 76 was still just 2 lanes (maybe a turn lane no yellow , blue routes. Really liked the views better before the roads but traffic was not fun. We have stayed out on Indian point most of those years. Stan just had to buy his boat from Bass Pro and come down and get it in March that was our first trip. He still has the boat and we now love the area around Table Rock. Stan keeps teasing that we should retire there, but then where could we go for Vacations, and the biggest reason is the Grandbaby( she will be 7 ) is here and so Gramma will also be here. Stan and I grew up in SW Mich. he in a very small town and me on a farm outside the very small town. So this is home.

Keep in touch

I just googled these locations, I do see a road trip on my next stay on Table Rock. Thanks,

So where are the good quilt shops around Springfield /Branson. I go to two in Sprinfield when I am there, do not like the one in Branson. So are there any other nice shops that I can do field trip on my next trip down.

Hi Alma...How's things going for you now? What are you working on? I'm making a lap quilt for my son . The pattern is Fancy Stripes...I got it from quiltercache.com...There are many quilts on there and it shows only 1 block and how much material you need for it. I've made all my quilts, except for the 1st one, from these patterns. Today, we had a very nice sunny day, 46 degrees and will get down in the low 30's tonight. Forecasters say no rain for a few days. Hope they are right. Sharon
