Ice Storm In Arkansas

Stephanie, one of my sisters, lives in Arkansas and recently experienced first hand the devastating effects of an ice storm. After the storm, they went out to survey the damage, clear the roads, and take photos. Here are just a few of the amazing pictures.

Trees everywhere are bent and broken

Power is seriously affected, and might be out for a month in some areas

Thick ice on a skinny branch. No wonder they break.

For a more detailed report and more pictures, see Two Kids And A Baby: Ice Crisis. This blog belongs to my other sister, Susanna, who helped post the photos and report.

Yes it is terrible! We got our power back on Thursday. Our yard is a big mess of broken trees.

Unbelievable! These are great photos! So glad all our grandchildren were with us last week and most of our children. It was especially a nice break for Terrill, Stephanie,Esther,Heidi & Elliott who live in Arkansas :-)

We are still without power, and they say it can still be quite a while before it will be restored. They said it could be as long as April for some people. This is getting costly to run a generator!! Minimum of 5gal. of gas a day is what we use!

Thank goodness for generators...they have made our lives a little more normal!

No microwave or dryer though! :) I have a wonderful close line outside that I use everyday to dry our clothes...nothing like line dried clothes! :P
