First Week of February Menu Plan
Happy February...time to thaw out!
(This picture is from The OU Dailey)
We've got some ice here in Oklahoma from the storm that came our way last Thursday. In fact, some people are still waiting to get power back on, and the power workers are doing their best to restore heat and light to the homes of an overwhelming number of customers in the state.
We owe our thanks for the many hours that linemen, road crews, utility workers and other service folks have put in since Thursday afternoon. The workers have faced some treacherous conditions; inches of ice, downed power lines...and poles! and frigid temperatures. Additional thanks go to the many volunteers at churches and shelters who made sure people had hot meals and a safe, warm place to stay.
We're supposed to get some gradual melting this week, and that's what we need. Hopefully, we won't get flooding from thawing that occurs too quickly. As I write my blog from a warm home where the power is on, I feel very blessed today. Here's hoping that February will be storm-free!
