We had a terrible ice storm pass through the Kansas City area Tuesday through Thursday that caused millions of dollars in damage. We lost many limbs and some fell on our house. We lost our power at 7:15 on Wednesday and just got it back last night after 80 hours of cold and darkness in our house. We will have to replace all the food in our fridge, but that's no big deal. Power crews from 13 states came in to lend a hand in restoring the 400,000+ customers who lost power in this storm. It's amazing how much we depend on our electricity in our society. If you ask me what my best piece of HT gear is...it's the damn electrical box!!!
