Default Appleton LOCKED DOWN!

For all of those who have loved ones at Prairie Correctional Facility, they are on a facility wide lockdown. It started this morning and is anticipated to continue through the week until Friday (or through Friday). Apparently they do this once a year. They are doing a facility wide "shake down". You can still visit but each inmate is strip searched prior to the visit (while still in their cell) and escorted to visiting. All moves within the facility are restricted.

They get two bag meals plus one hot meal (bag breakfast, hot lunch and a bag supper). No showers until Wednesday (at the earliest). I guess they are also replacing the boilers this week (which i believe is why no showers).

My husband thought that maybe once their unit was searched, then they could be out and about within their unit but he's not sure.

This also means no phone calls. He's guessing that once they are able to shower, they may also be able to make phone calls during their shower time. I believe he said they get 20 minutes to shower so if they shower quick enough they may be able to use the phone during that time too, but he's not sure.

I just thought i'd let you know this in case anyone is waiting for a phone call. I was at visiting today and was surprised to hear of this.

Oh yeah...outgoing mail may be slower leaving the facility this week too but they should receive their incoming mail without any problems.

I guess the "memo" said that they may be done by Wednesday "with inmate participation" but it also referenced Friday. I'm guessing they give the worst case scenario so the guys aren't pounding on the doors asking to get out.

I can't imagine how much that must suck (for lack of a better word) being locked down in a 6x9 cell with another person. I'm thankful my husband has a TV and a fan in his cell to keep the air moving.

My sister-in-law and I always liken it to her and I being locked in the bathroom for extended periods of time. I just can't imagine it!

I agree. I would absolutely hate being locked in a little room like that. Luckily Dan has a tv too and a roommate that he gets along with.

I also heard from my hubby today too. He said that it actually hasn't been too bad but then again he spends most of his time in his cell anyway. I'm going to visit tomorrow morning -- i'm sure he'll be glad to get out of the cell and into the visiting room. Besides, i'm in need of a hug!
