Midwest Snow Storm
Contest Directions: [ Utility crews worked overtime Saturday and Sunday to restore electrical service to thousands of customers still blacked out by the Midwest's first big snowstorm of the season. ]
Somewhere I've read that a snowstorm is God's way of saying "take some days off". I can understand that. But when this snowstorm knocks out power and turns off lights, is it God's way of saying "take some days off and love thy spouse"?
In this contest you are asked to photoshop anything connected to a recent Midwest snowstorm and power problems. E.g. feel free to create advertisements for any Midwest businesses / services that adjust to snowstorm and power problems.

This contest is fueled by the following news: On Saturday, utility crews worked to restore power to thousands of electrical service customers in the Midwest. The first major snow storm of the season ripped through the area. Temperatures fell dramatically below freezing in the aftermath of the wicked storm. Officials stated that some customers could end up being without electrical service for days. In Missouri, the National Guard went door to door in St. Louis to make sure residents were okay. The storm itself has been blamed for at least 13 deaths across its path from Texas up to Michigan. The storm blew into the Northeast late on Friday and into Saturday. Businesses and schools had to close in the aftermath of the rough storm. Many airline passengers were stranded as flights were canceled. Trees ended up being blown down onto cars and homes. The festive and large Christmas tree in front of the New Hampshire blew to the ground. The Red Cross in Illinois helped people stranded on Interstate 80 by ordering hamburgers that were airlifted to the motorists by the National Guard. 16 inches of snow fell in parts of Missouri while 17 inches was left on the ground in parts of Michigan. Oklahoma, near Bartlesville, ended up with 15 inches of snow as a result of the storm. Chicago experienced no major delays at its two major airports. The international airport in St. Louis, Lambert Field, experienced some delays of up to about 15 minutes. Missouri Governor Matt Blunt advised people in that state that people should not travel unless it was necessary absolutely.
