Ice Storm News and Views
Alternative Tulsa has been doing daily reports of progress in getting the area back on the grid. Today AT reports some good news:

Six days after a major ice storm caused massive power outages across Tulsa and much of the state, the power is back in many parts of midtown Tulsa.

Kurt Hochenauer of Okie Funk has made a list of three issues leaders in this state need to be seriously thinking about, noting “the severity of this storm demands new initiatives and open-minded, intelligent thinking.” Well, we can hope.

A photo essay by Doug Dawg shows two sides of the past week when ice had all the power: beauty and beast.

Health report
The Program Witch has been diagnosed with diabetes and now has some new technical difficulties.

Bob Waldrop's father passed away, after what sounds like a life very well lived.

Our best wishes to K and Bob.
