No news yet? I have been saying prayers and I know she is a very strong lady. But I am still concerned.

I haven't read the story yet, but I saw a headline that said that Kentucky is thawing out slowly. Katie is in my prayers.

Western KY is a mess. Our local news has been saying it could be mid-Feb before power is restored to that area. MSNBC ran a big story about the storm today, they interviewed our gov. who has declared a state of emergency for the whole state. I hope Katie is safe and warm. I doubt she has power yet though.

I don't know if Katie has a fireplace, wood stove, or another heating source other than electricity, but hopefully she is snug and warm under a pile of quilts and kitties.

Come back to us soon Katie, we love you and miss you!

I've been trying to call her too and I just get a busy signal. But she took my number with her, and I've been checking my voicemail every few hours. She really is very self-sufficient and does have family close, so I am pretty sure she's okay.
But I sure as heck will feel better when I can hear from her!

I also tried to call her...no luck. CNN this afternoon showed National Guard in her area of Kentucky going from house to house to make sure everyone was OK. They had a nasty storm, and I'm sure her power must be out. Katie is very resourceful and knew it was coming, but I sure am anxious to hear from her....

The flight was canceled, so she didn't get to go on her trip.

Kim and I are still trying to get hold of her, but it may be a while. We talked to Katie the night before the storm, so she knows we are concerned. I just hope she can get through to us soon.

The pictures on the news tonight didn't look too encouraging. Travel is extremly limited by the trees and power poles that are down.

Still, I believe she is okay.

I remember a thread a few months ago, actually I think around Thanksgiving, that she was cold in her place because Buck wasn't there to light the fire and the kids didn't want her doing it. I can't remember if it was a fireplace or woodstove, but I do remember the comment.

Yeah, but a person does what they have to do when they have no choice. I learned how to start a generator and make a fire in a coal furnace.
