The ice should all be gone before the sun goes down today. I’m basing this on the forecasted high of 58 degrees, with full sun.
The power (I’m loving, this week, how that word can be understood two ways in all these posts. We have no electricity, but we’re also powerless over our situation.) has been returning to what seems like nearly all corners of Siloam Springs.
We called the Siloam Springs Electric Department this morning, to see if they could tell us anything about our situation. At least this person was interested, and seemed helpful. Hopefully we’ll hear something when he’s able to ask someone higher up (they’re all in the field, of course).
It’s now been 86+ hours without power at our home, covering four whole nights. I’m really tired of writing these posts — I just want to be back in my own home, with luxurious amenities (as I called them yesterday) such as heat, lights, a functional stove, and a working refrigerator and freezer.
