Well we are getting a ICE STORM!! I got awaken about 4 this morning to
a loud crack. I thought it might be my neighbor lady friends pine
tree, but after going outside, it is my tree on my roof - ulp! The
beautiful Bradford pear on the sdie of my shop is down too. I looked
at Barbs at the pine is still*** in there I would say with close
to 3/4 inch ice but her Bradford pear was ready to get her car so I
got it moved. You hear stories of people talking about being out in
something like this, to hear the trees snapping and breaking, but I
tell you in th edark and stillness it is scary.

Thank god, so far my part of town the electric has not gone out yet.
It has gone off a couple times, but I figure with much more freezing
rain or if the wind starts to blow we will have BIG trouble! Right now
there is 70,000 in the city area with no electric. Today we are to get
more.

I know taht the storm is predicted for Kansas, Missouri and to
Illinois so wondering if anyone else is affected yet. I guess when
daylight comes I will see what is done outside nad get some pictures.

(hugs)

I'm in Tulsa - of course we've got it too. Sitting here near the window,
watching trees go down, hoping the ones near my home stay up. We lost
one in a wind last month, so at least it's out of the way.

We got freezing rain and rain the last nights. This morning all the
trees looked like glass!! I haven't seen any downed trees yet, because
I think we got less than a 1/4 inch of ice. More predicted for this
evening, and my youngest DS basketball game is canceled because of the
weather!
Dave I hope your trees dont fall on your  house! Everyone be careful
if traveling!

we got the ice storm here in ny too.  As DH was out cleaning off the
car for me this morning I was out taking pictures of the driveway.
Here is pictures of our ice, it was thick.  The commute to work wasn't
to bad once I was able to get out of the driveway and off the
backroads onto the main highway it wasn't so bad.  Here is my
pictures:http://community.webshots.com/album/561734461cAVWvQ

It is supposed to start here about 2:00 am. I'm not looking forward to it. I
hate ice storms. Steve brought his computer home from work in case it is so
bad he can't get to work tomorrow.

Brrrr!  It's really cold here too.  I had to put a long sleeve shirt on
today.

Ducking any beaded sandals thrown my way,

I'll try and send some of our 80 degree temps your way!!   I'm sorry
to hear about all the damages due to the ice.  I bet that's scary to
deal with.  I know we are supposed to get some of the colder temps,
but none of the ice.  Please be careful dealing with all that!  We
want all of you to be safe.

Hugs,
Amanda

Non here....though they are starting to talk about funky weather this
weekend.  My first thought was, "oh, I have to go buy more pet food!"  LOL
No, I'm not worried if the people run out of food, just the pets!  I hope it
has settled down for you a bit.

What you're getting is exactly what we (KC) got back in '02. Until
you've heard the horrible sound of the trees cracking and falling and
all of the breakers blowing up you can't even imagine it.

Ours was all sleet Saturday and yesterday it was freezing rain in the
evening. Luckily it warmed up (33) overnight so all we had all day
today was just rain. The trees and ground is all covered in ice
though. Luckily my huge pear tree out back has held up for all of our
ice storms. <knock on wood> Unfortunately the birch tree in front has
a huge/major branch broke and*** over the fire hydrant. I lost
another major section of this tree a couple months ago from wind in a
fall storm. I think due to that it must now be weak.

Hang in there Dave. I hope you still have power and that there isn't
too much damage from the falling trees. Your city will still be
cleaning up come spring.
