Freezing rain

Freezing rain and sleet are falling now so we're a bit worried about losing our power. We do have a fireplace and we do have some firewood, thankfully. However, Mark already has been called from work that he should be ready to go out with line crews if necessary. They have line crews coming in from the south and they need people to show them around town and such, so the engineers and people like that get called in from their desk jobs to help out.
It's looking nasty and my darlin' husband isn't too thrilled about it all.
Will had to drive to Dayton to pick his dad up from the airport this afternoon, so I've been praying for their safe travels too. Thankfully, Beth isn't scheduled to work these next few days, so she can just stay home.
I'm making a batch of my spaghetti sauce and meatballs and Michael is helping me. Mark has been doing school with John all afternoon which is definitely a blessing to me.

I hope and pray that all of you are well....God bless....

Hi Barb,
Hope you're keeping power with all that ice you're getting. We just woke up this morning to a good 8-10 inches of snow. I haven't been scheduled to work in 6 weeks...figures today would be my day. I love to play, but hate to travel in this.
The kids can't wait to put on their snow clothes and get out there! Better get.
