The Storm

Well my parents just called...the storm is finally gone!

Sustained winds in the area were close to 50 mph for over a day, with gusts around 100. Before the storm even hit, cell phone service was gone. Then the power went out. Luckily, my parents have a gas fireplace and stoves to keep warm. Safeway had one generator on for awhile so people could stock up on food, but no gas stations were open. I guess all those years of my dad demanding at least half a tank of gas in my car finally makes sense :) Hwy. 18 (the main way to get out of town) was closed, so my parents had to hope other roads were not covered in trees; they drove through Hebo to make it up to Portland. This might shock you, but they're on their way to Havasu since there's really nothing to do in Lincoln City :)
