So my power is out

As I mentioned, my power is out currently.  We had a bad ice storm blow through here over the weekend, and apparently there’s still about 5000 people in my town (of about 25000 residents) still without power.  I’m a little concerned about the food in my fridge spoiling, and a little more concerned about my pipes freezing, but I don’t know that there’s really anything I can do about either problem.

The power company doesn’t have an estimate on when the power is coming back, though they’re saying they hope to get power back to “most” people by the end of today.  Hopefully I’m included in the “most” category.  I really like electricity, and I would like it back, please.
