Default Ice Storm

The ice storm that shut my town down is gone, power has returned and the ice has melted. Here are some pictures from the storm. I'll let them speak for themselves.


























While sitting in my parents' house (with power) I had time to organize my tackle box and get some things done. We were without power for a week at my house.













Anyway, glad we were blessed to be able to stay with family who had power. Many up here didn't have that option and stayed at shelters. Others stayed in their houses, heating them with wood fires. We were blessed... with the 3 little ones.

Glad you had a place of comfort during that Opry. Pretty impressive pics!

And....you had time to organize.

Good deal!

That's crazy! We got snow in MN for the first time in what feels like a long time. The ground was almost completely free of snow before this recent snow storm.

Yea-- there's still National Guard out here clearing trees from back roads and parking lots. We have another storm on the way tomorrow night through Thursday morning. More sleet, ice, and snow.

I can't imagine it will be anywhere near what it was 2 weeks ago, but you just never know.

Went through an ice storm in Washington once. That is SO weird! Ice just starts to build up on everything....at least in a blizzard I know where it came from!

They didn't, thankfully. We didn't have water either, so we couldn't leave it on a drip. We were very fortunate to not have pipes bust.

Went back to the house every day, 3rd day of no power, the water got turned back on, so I turned it on a drip.

7th day, the power turned back on.
