Ice Storm

Saturday, December 07, 2013

These are blocking our driveway, which is about 1/10 of a mile long. We are going to try to get out today -- but may have to cut trees to do so!

In other news, being stuck in the house for two days has not been good for my diet and I'm up a couple of pounds! Back to business today, though....

    Although the ice is beautiful, it is a pain. I hope all went well with getting out to work!

    Your pictures are beautiful and I have some beautiful ice storm pictures but a huge limb broke and went into my back car window and made a couple of dents in top. Ice is pretty but can be more dangerous that snow

    Ice storms are the worst! They leave beauty behind but its so hard on the trees and on the electrical lines (esp. where I live!). Good Luck.

    Wow! Thanks for the great pics. Our drive is the same length as yours, but we were LUCKY this time; instead of ice layers in 7in of snow last night, we got just half an inch of icysnow. (whew!)

Hope you don't have to cut many branches, they look like wonderful trees.

    Thanks for sharing the pics. I don't miss that weather, but even in Charlotte NC we can get ice and freezing rain. No trees threaten to bend over our road though! Stay safe and warm!

    Luckily we didn't get that much ice in Western Kentucky but I have been home since Thursday afternoon and they are telling us to not get on the roads today. Our trees looked like that and worse in 2009. Stay safe!

    I like your pictures. Those trees are a big problem. Be careful when you get rid of them. The problem with ice storms is that your exercise also gets off track.
You are staying positive and ready to eat healthy.

    I remember many storms like that. Haven't had one in years. Of course, I've moved south. That could explain it. lol!

    The ice will melt, most tree will bounce back. Thankfully you have power. Usually we lose it for days. Storms usually provide me with the "someday" for when I get a "round To It" tasks.
