I hated for this image to get lost in the other thread as I thought that it deserved its own. This should give you some idea of just how thick the ice was on everything. This is the limbs on a tree in my front yard. I am over two weeks now without power (we weakend and bought a generator lol). and am probably looking at another week at least. Its seems like a trivial thing to complain about when you see the destruction caused all over the area. I wanted to share this photo with all of you. Its beautiful really, but tragic at the same time.

Nice image. I wish I had taken some pictures. It was horrible but still so beautiful.

The night it was coming through was almost (for lack of a better word) profound, too. It had settled down for a little bit and the 6 o'clock church bells by my house started ringing (they sound really pretty!) I went outside to listen since I didn't have power or anything else to do just listened. The cracking tree limbs and screaming emergency vehicle sirens were nearly drowned out by the pretty little church bells ringing, and at one point the multicolor flashes of transformers blowing were in sync with the bells. The chruch bells seemed to be a little peace in what was soon to be hell for a lot of the area.

I'm glad it's warmed up a bit here in KY though, so it's not so terrible being in the cold and dark as it was the first few days after the storm.

We had a really bad ice storm in Atlanta in the early 70's and it was surreal. It is "hauntingly" beautiful. We were only without power for 2 days so I really feel for ya'll.
Peace Pinky

I have to tell you, the night we got that second round of ice was the scariest night of my life. We live in the sticks and to have to lay there in the thick of night and listen helplessly as every tree in the yard and the woods that surround us came crashing down...I have never experienced anything like that in my life and hope that I never have to again! And I am sure many people feel the same way!

Yes I have also said the same thing, the dead silence of no power and then the frightening sound of limbs cracking popping and crashing to the ground. It really gives you the sense of what the coming ice age is going to be like.

I cannot help but think that it is a test for what is to come.
