Well today we had a pretty bad Ice/Freezing Rain Storm. We had no power for most of the day, and luckily it came back on tonight. Some surrounding area's still don't have power, and have been projected to not have it for 2-8 days. Hopefully mwt will check in here and give us his schpeel. Anyway, here's some of the damage, and tree's are constantly cracking and falling all around us all day under the weight of the ice.






:noes:
Hopefully the power doesn't go out again...
:noes:

Tonight, Tomorrow, Wednesday.
No one really knows.

It's not good.
It's still raining right now, and supposed to all through the night, and its supposed to freeze also.

EDIT:
Hopefully Mike (mwt) and his family is alright, he's South of me about 10-20 (? I think?) miles, and AFAIK is pretty rural.

I talked to mwt earlier. He's got no power at all, all the trees snapped at his house. He's staying at some family member's house at the moment. No power estimated till next week at the earliest.

Stay warm guys and be careful!

Since no one cared about my drunk looking post at 1:30 in the morning, I will give the short verison.


Ice storm came.

Demolished a whole lot of Old Old Old trees.

Some of them hit my house.

No power


Staying at in laws because they had a wood stove and no electricity.

Now they have electricity but I don't

Internet is barely working at work

We've been riding a weather roller coaster down here. We had record highs last week, then dropped 40 degrees overnight. It rained, fogged, misted, jumped back up to records highs again (in the 80's), the plunged again to 40 and rainy. Fuggin sucks.

Be careful out there y'all.

It hit 86 here a couple days ago. About 75 right now. It is supposed to rain tomorrow but I won't be complaining.

By the weekend we should have highs in the 40s.

:ugh: I enjoy the temp, but these drastic temperature+humidity changes are really messing up my sinuses.

Glad you got some kind of internet access Mike and you guys got a place to keep warm.

Mike if you see this and haven't heard, we are supposed to have 6" of snow coming Friday.

A lot of people still don't have power, and we most likely are going to be hit again.
