2007 ice storm in MO and OK. This storm was horrible and it brought down so many trees and power lines. My parents were without electricity on their rural MO home for over 2 weeks, closer to 3 weeks. I needed dates and info for this LO so went online and found this great article by their power company. I borrowed parts of it and its perfect tile, it says it all! The linemen would get the poles back up and 20 more would come down. At one point every line on one entire grid was down. My parents have a wood burning stove they can cook on and use for heat and they had their RV they could hook up as a generator to run a few things on. They prepared by filling tubs and jugs and pitcher with water as their well is electric.
