What a REAL mess!

So after a major ice storm last night over 350,000 people in NH have no power. My dad happens to be one of those people.... ererr I should say my dad's house. My poor dad is flying in from WY (where he teaches during the school year) tomorrow and his house has no power and no heat and its gonna be 12 degrees tonight. Nothing like a warm welcome home. We thankfully have power and heat. We have been busy this evening planning on ways to keep the pipes from freezing in my dad's house. As of now the plan is for my brother Greg to light a kerosene heater( that belongs to Mike's dad) in the basement to keep the pipes from freezing. After filling Greg up with a hot meal and a bag of candles, matches and flashlights and a few gallons of kerosene, and the heater he is heading to my dad's house to light a fire in the fireplace and start the heater in the basement. PSNH is warning people that it may be several days before the power is up because there are so many down trees. arggggh. Stay warm everyone!!!
