Power Outage

UPDATE: We have power! I have the utmost respect for the guys working for AmerenUE. They are working hard and fast (and hopefully safely) to restore power as quickly as possible. They did say that it still looks like it could be 7-10 days for all of the St. Louis metro area to be fully restored with power. Apparently the guys that fixed our lines just happened to be in the neighborhood and decided to stay and work on our block!

As probably everyone realizes, St. Louis was hit on Thursday/Friday with a very serious winter storm that packed lots of ice and some snow to top it off. While we did not lose power in this summer’s big storm, we did lose it on Thursday night. Interestingly enough we lost it two hours after our power line fell across our backyard and ripped chunks of the house down. We originally thought that we would be without power for 3-4 days. However, we just heard from our landlord that it could up to 10 days before power is restored.

Thankfully, we are now staying in guest housing at the seminary along with a lot of other people effected by the storm.

Please keep all those that are out working to repair the storm damage in your prayers.

  1. Apparently someone was looking out for you. It did work nicely that you had people in your neighborhood ready to fix things, what’s the damage to the house?

  2. The only thing that needs to be done is to have some bricks replaced and some tuckpointing work done. AmerenUE will come back and finish up the work that they started once the brickwork is finished.
