Hey everyone! I’m SO sorry this is a day late! I live in Ohio and our power was out from the storms that hit the East. So we just got power back after 48 hours. Please accept my apologies for the delay! ~Abbey

    Great ideas. Thanks for sharing. My fav is the American flag pallet art. By the way, my hubby has over 400 guys (from GA Power) in your state helping to restore power. Glad yours is back on, especially if it’s as hot there as it is here (105 today)!!!! Hot, hot, hot!

      Well, tell them thank you because OUR power is back on…I can’t speak for the other 250K central Ohioans without power still though.

    which part of Ohio? AND did you have any damage/loss beyond the lack of power?? is your water supply affected?? that huge portion of the country affected by a sudden wind that was not a hurricane or tornado just sounds so frightening.

    • Abbey posted on July 2, 2012 at 4:54 am (#

      Brenda, I’m in Columbus. Thankfully, no we did not have further damage…but most of our neighbors did. Our water supply wasn’t affected either, thank God. It’s pretty bad…most of my coworkers and many friends are still without power. How we have it back is beyond me. We got very lucky because they originally said it would take a week to get it back. It was AMAZING how quickly that storm came through and how much damage it did in like 15 minutes.
