I will move past this ice storm soon, it's just that it lasted so long that I can't seem to get it out of my head. Or my blog. Plus, I took lots of pictures. Not as many of the damage as I would have liked because I was pretty much stuck at my house. But here are a few anyway.
This is my neighbor's house. Those trees are Bradford Pear trees. Any of them with any size in this area look just like this....split in two. We didn't lose any because our trees are much smaller.
Power lines were down everywhere.
That plastic bag is on a powerline that is dangling in the road. Very spooky.
Some more Bradford Pears. They have been cut down now.
Most of the trees look like this tree now. The limbs have split off and fallen. They look like toothpicks.
All of these pictures were taken within 1 mile of my house. But the entire western Kentucky area looks just like this. It looks like a tornado came through.
Lines formed at every gas station. Not only to fill up vehicles but also to fill up gas cans. Since so many people had generators hooked up at their homes everyone had to buy fuel for that also.
There are still thousands without power. I have friends that live way out in the country and their electric isn't expected to come on for 3-4 weeks. With that being said, I feel pretty darned lucky.
