I've been in similar storms when I lived in Nebraska, so yes I can imagine. It's awful and I feel horrible for the people in KY. Several years ago my parents had a tree collapse on their house, but fortunately it just clipped the corner. I have a picture of a huge tree the backyard at my own house that was split by the weight of ice and wet snow. We were lucky our tree didn't hit our house. We lost power for a bit of time, but not as long as my parents had since they were in an older neighborhood. That stuff all happened during a huge ice/snow storm in the late '90's. I also have pics from the blizzard of '06 in Denver. We couldn't even open our garage for days after the storm & then got hit again! Many people were unable to leave their houses and the plows didn't come thru for days. So I can relate to the folks that got hit by that storm.

Akin-- That's really great he did that for you guys. At least you had something I guess. I'm glad you got your electricity back finally. Hope you and your family are o.k.
And yeah, my friend had only electric heat in 2006 after the blizzards out here and her house flooded. She worked nights, came home at 8:00 the next morning to a flooded house. Then she couldn't get anyone out there to fix it for days & had to pay out the a$$ for it. The worst part for her was that she had just remodeled it and it was a very old house. It cost a lot to repair everything.
