    In Tulsa, I know I am without power and so is Masher, Have not heard form anyone else. Most of the hotels don't have power so there is no place to go. I got lucky and my dad went out of town and his place still has power so we are staying there until power comes back on.

    They are saying it could be Sunday before power is restored to everyone in the city. I have never seen this many people without power before, it is awful. Sunday night we sat in the dark and watched transformers and sub-station blow like it was a lightning storm or something.

    Freaky weather for "Global Warming"

    P,
    Do you have power at the club? Might need to make a trip over and check on the house.

    Here in Owasso, we had no power Sunday night. I came back on about 9:30 Monday morning. It then flickered throughout the day. It was steady last night though. We went out driving around yesterday to check things out. A lot of Broken Arrow is without power. People are hitting gas stations like mad. We saw lines everywhere.
