This makes us realize how important electricity really is! Too bad the electricity is off again today (12/11/08). Those of us with small children find it especially difficult. We have no water, heat, light, etc. Hopefully they can find the problem fast and get us back up. My alarm for work didn't go off this morning and I was not able to shower; things get hard!

Schools were not closed but students were told to get a ride home or reload the buses....? Were the schools closed or not?
Yes, they were closed because the electricity was out. They did not cancel school because of the snow and bad roads, which is very dangerous, but they did endanger the lives of the children twice in one morning because they picked them up for school and then returned them home minutes later - because there was no heat, light, etc.

Sure hope they get things going for those of you facing hardships, especially those with children.
Wonder what the problem is that they can't keep the power on? Good luck!!
