My Electric Outage

You may or may not have heard the Midwest suffered a big ice storm on Friday night. We haven't had power for 2 days now. After toughing it out the first 24 hours, we finally moved to my stepdaughter's house this morning. Despite the circumstances, we are having a really fun time.
Ameren, our utility company, has a website that we check frequently for updates on our situation. The site actually has a link entitled "My Electric Outage." Like My Summer Vacation I am guessing. It cracks me up every time we sign on. Then this lovely graphic pops up along with some very non-committal information such as they don't know why our outage occurred, when it will be fixed, etc.
So very helpful, our Ameren is.


  1. Wow that is too crazy! No power!! You are right though sometimes when you can not do anything about it - it just makes you relax and have fun with it. I do hope they get if fixed for you soon though.

  2. Oh my God, MB!!! I had NO idea! I hope they get it fixed for you soon... how frustrating for you, not to mention cold! How DID you tough it out for two whole days!?!? Warm Hugs, Shari

    Oh, Mistress of the Inventoried Freezer, would you be interested in a homemade cheesecake from 1996 that I found in the back and bottom of my large freezer downstairs? I pity our garbage collector tomorrow...

    It's good to be home where it's warm and there are lights, isn't it?
