    Yep, it's not going to be fun. Bedded everyone down really good, there's a good chance we'll be losing power tomorrow.

    Same here. I don't believe I will be making the hilly 12 mile trip to work in the morning. Right now its 27°F and pouring rain. The rain is freezing as it hits the ground. I expect us to loose power also. Got the chain saw and the gas where I can get to it to take care of any trees that fall under the weight. Stay safe and warm till this is over.

    We started out with snow last nite...it changed over to freezing rain/sleet around 10 and back to snow, now it's raining....we had 2 inches of that mess at 4 30 this morning, DH called in a personal day as since the schools are closed, the township doesn't plow or treat our road...he has a 26 mile trip to get to work.....I'm glad he's home, our gas went off and he was available to go and heat the main line that froze up.....I would have hads to walk the hill and come back down and call the well tender.....very icy here, DH quad had a problem climbing the hill in 4 wheel drive!

    I've got some pic here!
    This is a pine in my yard...the boughs are so heavy with ice it's about touching the ground.

    The goat panels are covered too.

    Behind my goat shed...those trees are normally not droopy.

    woke up to snow -- go figure they predicted rain and we got snow :doh:

    Roads were slick and I had to take it really slow. went to work and it decided to rain in the late afternoon and now all the snow is just about gone (except for the piles) :leap:

    We ended up with a light dusting that ended about an hour ago.....just flurries now with maybe 3 inches of accumulated ice and snow. We were lucky, it could have been much worse.

    Hi all glad everyone made out ok. Our kids have been out of school all week. We got about 8 inches of snow and thats not included what we got in ice. We lost electric twice, but a lot of people where without for a while. Our super walmart center was out for almost a whole 24 hours. But hopefully everything will start melting now. Cause they sure dont do anything for the back roads I live on.
