Ice Storm

We woke up this morning to a pretty coating of ice. Thankfully, we've had power all day, but the cable, phone & internet have been out until just recently. We're one of the few lucky ones. There's over 200,000 people in the local area without power and the power company has pulled in crews from as far away as Michigan to get the lines repaired. No school today as there was no power at the school. Here's a few photos after the snow started falling on top of the ice.

My poor lilac tree...

We'll have lots of firewood to cut as many of the trees in the back are down. There's still lots of crackling as more limbs break off. Our neighbor has a huge limb down leaning on his porch and the rest of the tree is leaning towards his house.
