send thoughts and love...

apARANTly the stl storm has knocked out the north side... (see more at Robus' Blog and Kristy's Blog.)
my parents house is OUT of power. my cousins house with her little ones is OUT. everyone is out but my grandparents. (thank the lord!) my poor parents are on VACATION this week. i mean vacation in the heat with no power? almost better to be at the office!?!

aparantly my parents lost some siding on their house and the tree in the backyard is not doing so hot. (as in its all over the yard).

they are pretty pissy. my cousin bridget said that all the grocery store's food was rotted around there and they were selling water for cash only and that it was a big mother loving MESS. she said the line at burger king (the only fast food around them that was open) was like a two hour wait. never thought the BK Lounge would sound so good!

that storm was ridiculous. send love and thoughts their way.
they aren't supposed to get power back till next Wednesday. next. wednesday.
on that note, the thunder and the wind are picking up here as well. maybe the heat will abate? we haven't seen rain in a long time.

Just an update to all-- we had a terrible storm this afternoon and it knocked out more than 200,000 more houses. We think that our apartment might have been on (no one is home, so not sure) because all the stop lights around us had worked at some point. Meanwhile, my aunt's went out Wednesday and came back on, then went out today and came back on. Give some love to the people who haven't had any...

Well its Sat. and still no power. Another storm grandma is out but my mom is on. We moved all the food over to moms and about 9pm friday grandma's power is back. As for Aunt Linda, Chris, Jake, and I they are saying it will be back Wednesday. Ahhhhhhhhhhh that is a whole week. Anyone want some company? Oh did I mention my van broke down and I don't know remember where it is. I feel like I am in a bad dream somebody pinch me. On the bright side the kids are great and they think its just 7 big sleep overs.
