Around 1,500 workers from other states have come to the Tulsa area to help restore our power. Many of them will be here through Christmas. Thank you for your help, friends!
The Coffman house is into day 6 without power. If power company estimates are correct, it will be the middle of next week before we are back on-line.
We are grateful for family and friends who have helped us out this week. Thank you so much for taking in these two refugees!
Alice informed me on Monday that her brain runs on electricity.
More than once this week we've wondered aloud how those with small children are making it through each day.
Speaking of small children, Zorro is cold and lonely. I spend about an hour with him each day. If he were one of those aloof cats who doesn't care for people anyway, he would be in heaven this week. But Zorro isn't that way - he thrives on companionship, especially mine.
For the record, if the Neilson ratings were this week nobody would be getting any credit from our household. That's ok - there was never anything good to watch on tv between the last college football game of the regular season and the first bowl game anyway.
P.S. Don't think we'll bother with the Christmas lights at this point, huh?
