Well, the good news is that we arrived safely back in OKC late Tuesday night. The bad news is that we had no electricity and trees literally covered our yard. Seriously, people. It was like a logging company had been working in our front yard! Not only did trees cover our yard, but almost every yard in our neighborhood was destroyed. We drove over tree limbs and branches to even get to our house. I was so sad. Our neighborhood has tons of trees and it seriously looks like a war zone now. We were lucky nothing was damaged, unlike my friend Ginny who had a tree go through her dining room window. Nice.
In case you haven't heard, Oklahoma suffered a really terrible ice storm and hundreds of thousands of people are out of electricity. We got power back Wednesday and most of our neighbors and friends are back into the light, also. Sadly, my brother-in-law and his wife are still without power and they live 7 blocks from us! It's so crazy!
Sean and my Dad cleared up the yard as best as they could and we have hired a tree service to finish the tough stuff. Just what you want to spend money on right before Christmas! :)
On a brighter note, we loved San Diego!! Sea World was great (not necessarily any better than San Antonio, though) and we spent our final morning doing some shopping at a folksy little old-timey outdoor mall on the bay. I highly recommend it for families.
Hope all is well with everyone and you are staying warm and dry.
