Default Just got slamed by old man winter!

Big ice storm hit here yesterday (Sunday) & it's still coming down tonight (1 inch plus on everything)!
I was at work when it hit & we were busy all day, dozens of downed power lines, car wrecks & 4 booming house fires most likely started by power lines.
Needless to say it was a busy 24 hour shift.

On the home front no electricity & major damage to all my trees.
Fortunately I keep them trimmed away from all my structures so the only property damage I have is a section of fence my neighbors tree fell on.

I'm kinda out in the country but it's strange to walk outside & see absolutely no lights as far as I could see.
My house is an island in a sea of darkness, I guess I'm the only one with a generator.
So it's not all bad, I have Sat TV & internet & a couple of heaters hooked up, it could be a lot worse.

I'm really not looking forward to going back to work Wen. but someone has to clean up this mess!!

I'll put up a couple of pics of the carnage tomorrow, I didn't have time to take any today, I was too busy clearing limbs out of my driveway.
