SAND SPRINGS, Okla. — Sarah Hand and her family, like most of Oklahoma, woke up with no power Tuesday morning.
“It started about 8:15 this morning," Hand said. "It came back on about 10:30 for about five minutes and then it shut back off.”
Seven hours later, the family still didn't have power and the temperature inside their apartment dropped each hour.
"We’ve gotten out all our blankets and we’ve been just kinda cuddling to keep warm," Hand said.
Hand is eight months pregnant and has a three-year-old daughter. But that is not her only concern.
“I’m on insulin, and so if the power is still going to be out, I’m assuming it will make my insulin maybe not as effective," Hand said.
The cold temperature inside and the darkness finally got to the Hands and they drove to family in Mannford.
Their power was finally restored at 6:45 Tuesday evening.
