We've Made it Through

It was wonderful to see God's amazing power. Just drop a little bit of ice on those thin little wires and see what happens. OK -- I know that's not theologically sound... but it's been fun to give thanks in all things the last 3 days.

I don't have time to tell all right now -- just thought I'd post a THANK YOU FOR PRAYING note... really quick! °Ü°

We are safe and sound.

I've got pictures. LOL

I bet you can hardly wait!!

AND...I'm still the queen of C.O.D.A.!! ::snicker:: OK -- not really -- but I played C.O.D.A... does that count?? And I played Monopoly. I played pick up soggy socks. Oh wait -- that's not a game...

I'd better quit while I'm ahead --

I'll be back soon -- with the DECEMBER 2007* ICE STORM... (Hear that said with a loud announcer's voice)

Here is a peek into the past. Electricity off at 8:45 a.m. Tuesday... back on sometime while sleeping Thursday/Friday. Fun was had by all... well -- most... I'm not sure if my dear husband thought it was fun... OK -- I know he was a bit stressed... Is stress fun? I don't think so. Fun was had by most... let's keep it real.

*ETA: Yeah -- let's not get older any sooner than we have to - THANKS Dawn. ;)


  1. I am so glad you are all alright!

    Living in Hurricane Country, I am so well aware how it feels to be without electric for extended times.

    I bet the kids were glad to get TV back! LOl.

  2. Glad all is well. I missed you. :)

  3. Fun was had by me, the sister that visited with my two children from Monday afternoon until Thursday morning. Man oh man were those kids, myself and my kids so fortunate. Jan and Dan were prepared. They had the wonderful wood burning stove that is connected to the furnace. Jen had just done her grocery shopping for a month. Jen got up around 5 a.m. on Tuesday morning anticipating the electricity going off and fixed a wonderful hot breakfast and the electricity went off around 8:45 a.m. Dan got a generator from his brother and all the gas and oil to go with it. I was very impressed and so thankful to be with them during the ice storm. God is so good!! Thanks Johnston family for the fun memories.

  4. Ice storms are treacherous and beautiful at the same time. I am so glad you are safe and looking forward to seeing pictures!

  5. WOW Jennifer - you really shoulda quit while you were ahead - the December 2008 ice storm? Or do you just have the gift of prophecy?


    Glad you're all well!!
