Default Ahhh, ice storm

That'* right, about 1/2" or ice, and still going. My wife called and said the trees have so much ice and teh wind is so strong one tree is coming down and she'* afraid it will hit the house. I expect the power lines to go down any time. Not looking forward to getting home to the mess.

I woke up to 4" of snow here this morning (it was sunny most of the day Saturday), but that'* nothing compared to an ice storm. Hope all is well and that tree comes know where near your place!

Keep it west. First steady rain we have had here, and I got all my maple taps and buckets out today. Hopefully, it will let up and I'll get about a 100 taps in tomorrow. Goooooooo springtime!!!

Yeah, Dan and I have had about 2 inches of rain that is changing over to ice and eventually snow.
The wind is just howling and the trees are looking pretty shaky. I'm so done with this weather, but I should have seen it coming...I washed the car on Friday. Tis the Wisconsin jinx.

Just got home from work. Took twice as long. Lots of branches down, trees look a bit droopy. At one point I had a total white out. So i went to slow down and heard the antilock. I was on ice. Made it home safe and sound.

The wife and I just stuck our heads out the back door to survey the damages thus far. What a mess.

Great to hear you made it home Dan and the trees haven't pounded the crap out of your home. Most of the snow that dumped here last night has thawed. We are suppose to get more this evening. Thanks fully...I'm working from home tomorrow and don't have to drive in it.
