Ice Storm Video

I ran across this video on the local newspaper site. Once you get through the insane line in the grocery store that's just up the street (the line goes all the way through the store), the video shows my neighborhood. They show the street behind our house in the first part of that section.

Today we spent some time chopping up limbs and making a huge pile in the front yard. I've dubbed it the beaver dam, and hopefully tomorrow I'll have pictures. It was snowing too much to have the camera outside, although thankfully none of the snow stuck to the streets. There are a few patches of black ice, but hopefully the (forecast) temps in the 40s tomorrow will get rid of that.

Have a great weekend, all!

Wow. That's just unbelievable to someone like me who's never lived with ice storms. I'm so glad you're okay!

That was an incredible video. That line in the supermarket was insane. I didn't know you had such a bad ice storm. You know in St. George we become very insulated!

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Our grocery store in Sand Springs was never that bad, but in that video your neighborhood looked a lot like mine.

We were withoutr power from about 10:30 Sunday night until around 7:00 Friday evening. What a mess. said...

I feel for you. So much of the country is having real winter weather. I won't complain about No. California, as it is just plain old rain, as usual. Hope it all warms up and clears up soon. ~Stacie
