Ice Storm Pictures

The weight of the ice was no match for most of the trees

Ice Wonderland

Power lines sagging under the tremendous weight of the ice

View of the fair grounds

The utility crews worked day and night to restore power to our town...a town of around 26,000....and nearly 100% without power....It's been a month and they're still working on restoring services to some people. Hats off to these men and women who have given up their family time to serve others! By the way...this is the street behind our house...LOL!

My mom was without electricity from this storm for 12 days! She was about to go crazy.

Ice is beautiful, but so destructive and dangerous. The pics of those power lines SCARE me! Yikes.
