we just dug out of our property today that is 3 miles southwest of Westville, OK. at the Addielee community. The Addielee Road East finally was cleared by the county & private individuals with the proper equipment. We heard and saw a tree-trimming crew from some company yesterday, but no one today. Still no sight of Ozarks Electric Cooperative which is the servicing electric company for our area. We will surely be thankful for their help whenever they do arrive. We realize the enormity of the ice storm! Trees uprooted in our yard and fell across power lines and snapped them and dislodged power poles or cracked them severely. Anyway, thanks for letting me vent. What a storm!

I got my electric back on friday afternoon, and my parents go thers on sunday am. they live 150 feet away from me. Just glad that ozarks is out there with crews working around the clock. I realize it is bad, but at least we did have heat, and wter. I know that many people still have no power and thats not good. but the crews are working. It could be worse.

We live south of Stilwell, Ok, and we also haven't seen a single truck. We've been out for 8 days also. We have a 15 month old baby and I just would like someone to give us a hint on when we could expect some power. I would like to call the ozarks place and not hear that recording. Please, let us know something.
