The Heartland Ice Storm

I have spent the last week in Chelsea, Oklahoma, arriving just after what is being known as the Heartland Ice Storm. This ice storm caused high amounts of damage to surrounding areas in Oklahoma. The ice caused tree limbs to break off, caused power lines to come down, and water lines to break. The family I stayed with had no power for 3 days (before I arrived) and no water for 3 days as well (2 of which were days I was here). Many people still do not have power or water from the Dec 10 storm. After seeing the damage done here, I know I am grateful for what God has given me and the people here are grateful for the little things, like the ability to take a shower or turn on the light.
