Chunks of ice, from the cars to the grass it’s crunchy.

The ice storm hit Pawhuska Saturday and the ice on the power lines has people running to the grocery stores.

Bread, eggs and milk, all were flying off the shelf as quickly as it was restocked.

FOX23 spoke with Michelle Malaske, a Pawhuska resident.

Malaske said, “It’s going to be reality that we won’t have electric.”

Shoppers with full carts lining up around the store to prepare just in case they lose power.

We spoke with Margo Gray another local Pawhuska resident, preparing by stocking up with groceries.

“My husband just got a call from his brother that lives up the hill and they don't have electric already,” Malaske said.

While shopping, Malaske said the lights in the store flickered.

“There’s our cue let’s get it and go home.”

“First of all I was in another store in town and the lights completely went off, another Pawhuska resident, Margo Gray said.

So Margo Gray moved to the next grocery store open

FOX23 found power lines down around town and Christmas lights off.

We saw crews working together to bring back lights and heat in this neighborhood.
We were out with the power crews and there was a hustle of, ‘go go go.’

We stopped one of the guys and asked him why it's such a critical situation.

He told me we have to get this heat back now for people before the next storm.
