    Power Outages

    Power Still out in Urbandale. Anyone know any updates on the power outage situation? Heard there are 40,000 people without power in the DM Metro.

    No updates, but some without power in CR too, even though we only got about 5".

    I heard that the Wal-Mart in Grimes is without power, but my apartment complex on the west side of 141 has power.

    In Johnston it's went out about 10-15 times but it's all been less than 2 minutes.

    Dammit, I jinxed it. We've had it go out three times now since this post, but it came back quickly each time.

    Re: Power Outages

    Was out from 11 pm to 7:30 am last night.... And again from 10:30 to 2:30 today.... Near Omaha.

    considering the number of outages, I'm not going to complain. That weather was brutal on the power guys last night.

    Re: Power Outages

    BTW- How long before I should start worrying about pipes starting to freeze? I was thinking about turning on the water even though our fireplace has kept a good portion of our first floor warm.

    Run a close by faucet at slow speed and when it slows down, start to worry.
