Blogging Tulsa Real Estate: December 2007

The Haves and the Have Nots

Here in Tulsa our priorities have changed just slightly this week.

 I am beginning to value such things as floor furnaces, gas hot water heaters without electric ignition, kerosene lanterns, and candles. 

As generators hum around town, I am concerned about my neighbors who are cold.  They have electric stoves rather than gas stoves -- which when lit give off some heat as long as you vent the room -- they do not have fireplaces.  The next house has such things and the occupants can stay warm.

 I have to say that this has been an equal opportunity power outage.  In Broken Arrow, both of our Wal-Mart Supercenters were closed for three or four days while the shops on Main Street could not keep their doors open. 

Restaurants that have been open have been doing a turn-away business with lines out the doors.  Those restaurants without electricity or emergency power have had to throw away spoiled food and wonder if they will even have a business after Christmas.

My daughter-in law-Christan is 9-months pregnant and very ready to have a baby.  I worry about her incessantly.

Life is simple here.  We appreciate our blessings and are watching out for each other.
