Following a severe ice storm on Saturday night, tens of thousands of homes in the Lansing, Michigan, area have been without power. This has resulted in me not being able to post anything to my blog. We are still without power four days later and there is little hope of power returning for at least a couple more days. It is so bitterly cold, along with thousands of others, we have had to seek shelter elsewhere. After staying with friends for two nights, we are now in an hotel awaiting further developments. As the temperature is likely to drop further in the next few days, the situation could seriously worsen as more ice means more trees falling on power lines. Please remember to pray for us here in mid-Michigan.
