Hi, Just heard the bad morning news on the radio that parts of the USA have been hit with terrible ice storms, which caused a lot of damage.

Oklahoma and large parts off the mid west have been affected with about 500,000 people without power.

I hope you mid west guys are all right there.

Let us know what is going on.

Good luck, Raymond

In N Illinois we missed by a couple degrees. The rain is not freezing so far, but may later in the day.

Saw pictures of the storm on CNN & Fox News this morning, looks to be pretty severe.

This looks almost as bad as a hurricane. It certainly is doing as much damage to the infrastructure.

I have been working in OKC for the last two days with the wireless company I work for coordinating generator rotations to the Cell sites. Right now The company has about 50 cell sites without power and 15 generators to roate to charge batteries up and move on to the next site.

Fortunately the other 40 or so sites out have stationary gen sets but keeping them fueled up is a 24 x 7 adventure.
