Hey I'm just down the road in Okemos. We go out for pizza at Spags!

There was 10 to 14 inches in the driveway when I took the snow blower to it this afternoon.

Second night with no power... the house was a toasty 48 degrees this morning. Fortunately, the gas fired hot water heater is cranking away and we can use the gas stove burners to pump heat periodically (about 10 minutes per "firing") into the house. I'm at work and the funny thing is that Consumers Energy's web site says that we've had our power restored, but the whole neighborhood (including the stop lights) is still dark!

Atleast you can go to work and get warm. Hoping you have heat when you come home tonight.

Happy day... I stopped by the house on my lunch hour and found from the digital clocks that the power came back on just before noon. The furnace was humming and the temp was back "up" to 54 degrees already. The biggest problem with restoring power was one of magnitude. Our one county alone had about 40,000 of the 110,000 homes state-wide that lost power during Sunday's ice. As of this morning Consumers said that they still had 577 discovered line-breaks to fix in our county. There have been bucket-trucks all over the place since Monday AM.

Hi Geoff. Sorry for the rough time you've had during this storm. I'm glad to hear that your power is back on.
What county do you live in?

I had to drive north on I-75 from Ohio yesterday afternoon. I couldn't believe how terrible it was in Wayne County. It was almost like the snowplows hadn't touched parts of the interstate. As soon as I got into Oakland County, I-75 was majorly better.
