    Default ice storm

    wow! I'm finally back online again, after almost a day and 3/4 without power

    lots of tree damage, whole town was out for several hours today.

    crews are here from several states to help get things going

    hope everyone else that may be dealing with this storm are ok

    here's a few pics, first 4 are taken from around my house, the last one is of a house a few blocks north of me

    Good to see you back. I gotta have my brother from the west with a near identical Sub. If I could, I'd be out there shovel snow and ice with you

    Storms like that can suck becuase ice is heavy. I've been through those before and the ice can make trees fall on you, your house, or your truck!

    Not to mention it gets heavy on things like carports and they can collapse and scratch the fire out of your paint.
