8 days and no power! We knew that it was coming, and knew it would be bad, but didn't know it would be as bad, as it got!
The storm, didn't just get one state, it took a few more , and there are some who still don't have power to this day! It hit a alot of people hard, and not just people , it hurt alot of animals, and the wildlife, and it hurt the trees the most! This is the first time we have ever seen an ice storm that has taking so many trees down.
I want to thank all the people that were and are out there working too get the power back on, they put their lifes on the line , to get the lines back up so we can get our lives back online!

The storm stared on Friday nite, first the rain came , then it turn to ice, it came down hard and fast, and by morning , ya just knew it would be a different world out side !
And that is where, my story starts , and I will tell you in a few days,

I'd enjoy a little snow here but certainly not what you got. I especially like the first picture but they are all good.

I well remember an early winter Sunday afternoon. Temps were in the mid-60s. Sun was shining. It was a perfect day to take a nap before going back to church that evening. When we woke up, the temps were in the 20s and ice was covering everything! Beautiful, for sure, but what a mess it made of people's lives. We did make it up to Jan's folks the next day and found a litter of puppies huddled around a tree. No sight of mama. We took the pups home, raised them, and found a home for each of them. I even have pictures somewhere ... but it was nothing like what you've experienced.

Hey Jan I been enjoying the pictures but I had to go to town and get another can of W D forty to grease up my joints where Arthur lives . This 50 degree weather we got is bad enough. I would have loved the ice and snow about 7 years ago because then I was confortable with just a couple of shirts on! Blessings . Grandpaw.

Janice....I can't remember the year the ice storm hit upstate NY...but what I can remember is standing on my patio at about 2:00 in the morning....listening to the trees...almost as though they were crying and moan..the creaking and breaking of the limbs...(I actually wrote a poem about it; I must look for it)...anyways, it was the most eerie sound...and I remember feeling so helpless...many trees were lost...the pics you took are incredibly beautiful despite the loss... Blessings to you....

We had a storm like that four years ago.

Tough on everything. Though it did make it more pleasant that summer without all the insects.

Those icicles are the longest for trees that I have ever seen. Nice pictures.
I'm glad you found one of those cardinals yesterday.

We had one of those 6 or so years ago and the trees in the ravine behind the house are still bent. The ones that survivied. That first photograph is fantastic, you should submit it somewhere.

Wow now I know why I moved from Illinois to the South EAST!! Just cold weather here...no ICE, no SNOW, just cold!! I can handle that!! I lived in Illinois most all of my life except for the past 6 years!! I know it is pretty but the devastation and the power outages and all of the mess and the wreaks are just awful!!
Thanks for stopping by today!! Come back again any time. Sandy flip flop!!
