About 7:00 to 7:30 last night Chrissy heard a weird pop. It was getting much colder fast but no high gusting winds...maybe 15 and no ice on ground, trees or lines...power went out. I saw two separate small grass fires in backyard...could not turn water on, the handle was tightened too tight I guess...the neighbors saw the fire I guess and they actually put the fire out...we were very lucky.

While working on the fire several people noticed the downed line that was very hard to see in the dark...no one stepped on it or no water was tossed on it. Fire out before fire dept arrived. They stayed for at least an hour. OGE had the line replaced by 9:15.

The furnace will not heat the house higher than 65 right now. We are freezing but just concerned might need some repair.
