My sister (and all of my Dad's family) live right around Fort Leonard Wood (where I'm from). I talked to her at about 1 and she said they had about 3 1/2 inches or so of a mix of nasty stuff. She lives on a gravel road and will be trapped at home through the weekend for sure. They haven't lost power yet, but it wouldn't surpise me.
Did you live down there in 86(?) when we had the really really big ice storm come through? We didn't have power for almost two weeks. My entire family camped out at my grandparents house. Propane heat out in the country and grandpa had a back up generator that ran right off the propane tank in the front yard. Ahhh....the memories.
