Daniel Smith, 8, kneels on the floor in the lobby of Yale Avenue Christian Church as snow begins to fall outside December 15, 2007 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Daniel and his mother came to the church looking for a warm meal after being without power for almost a week and losing all of their food in the refrigerator. Many people from the Tulsa and surrounding area still remain without power due to a storm that hit last Sunday as they brace for a second round of winter weather. By Brandi Simons/Getty Images.
