Over 75,000 Iowa customers lost their power last Saturday from the ice storm of the century!
Efforts to restore power have been thwarted by snowy, windy weather with gusts up to 55 mph. The power companies just cannot put their buckets in the air in those conditions. Although they could use the break from tireless efforts to put lines back up, they have lost over 60 hours of repair time (over 2 days) to the winds.
The Iowa Association of Electric Cooperatives has coordinated communications and repair efforts and gives us this chart showing who is still without power.
What would you do without electricity or water (since well pumps run on electricity) for a week? How would you survive? No TV, no vacuum, no washing machine, no cell phone charger, no computer (what....that's crossing the line), no alarm clock, no radio, no electric stove, no shower, no bath, no water to drink, and no heat. Would you melt snow for water to drink? If you have no fireplace, what would you do to keep your house warm enough to keep you and the water pipes in the walls from freezing? Would you use other fuels to burn in portable heaters and risk carbon monoxide poisoning?
Thousands in Iowa have had to make these choices over the past 7 days. What would you do? How would you survive?
