Ice Storm

On Christmas Eve 2009 it began to rain and then sleet. I hurried home from work looking forward to a quiet holiday with my cats and husband. About 3am the power went out and stayed out for 3 days! It was beautiful outside to see the ice all over everything but as the days worn on the cold (38 degrees) in the house became very uncomfortable. Tress were down across the road, power line hung across the road tangled in trees. We could at least get out once the road was clear to get a shower at a friend's house and to eat a hot meal! We ended up getting a generator when the power company called to tell us it would be another day and a half before they could restore power.

That's the kind of storm we usually get but haven't too much this year--snow is better! Nice blog you have.
