Thick ice coats blades of tall grass along Highway 125 near Fair Grove. taken by: Christina Dicken/News-Leader
I'm following this story so closely because this is where my family lives. I am very lucky where I am living now as we are not getting anything like they are there in Springfield, MO. There are highways here where I live that they closed this afternoon because of the freezing rain that we are having. You can open the door to our house and hear it hit the ground. But it can't be anything like what they heard in Springfield. They accumulated 3" of ice! My parents are still without power along with quite a few of our good friends. My sister still has power. I just can't imagine what they are all going through. I still have heat, a roof over my head and a car with no trees lying across it. I am very thankful.
