Victims of icestorm power outages
« on: December 15, 2008, 07:57:26 PM »
For all the families and businesses that are suffering from the recent power outages due to the ice storm.  Having gone through this two years ago for 13 days, I can relate to the huge interruption and devastation this can cause.  Lord, have mercy.  :(

Lord, have mercy.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"

Lord, have mercy!

We in the Pacific Northwest are currently in the middle of a strong winter storm, too.  1-5 inches of snow yesterday, Arctic cold the next few days, more snow expected on Wednesday and Thursday, more cold to follow that, possible freezing rain this weekend... :P  I'm sure Quinault and I, and everyone else who lives here in western Oregon and Washington, would appreciate your prayers as we brace for our own storm.
