What happened to Spring?! :: PICTURES :: -EDIT-

If any of you are in need of ice for your drinks, come on down! I've got plenty... I live in Sioux Falls, SD. An early April ice storm has left trees down everywhere and power outages throughout the area. This storm is supposed to get worse and continue through tomorrow, which is my 30th birthday. Lovely! So far, I have power and neither cars or house have been damaged. But, others haven't been so lucky.

It looks like a war zone or a tornado has hit our city.

This is looking out all the windows on the north side of my  house. Can't see a thing!

My back patio... those are icicles, it's not rain! Everything is coated in about 1/2 - 1 inch of ice.

My flip flops are frozen! Went from wearing flip flops yesterday to wearing boots again today... :(

Lots of trees down around the city. I got these on my way to drop off my son to preschool this morning...

Neighbor wasn't so lucky... :(


EDIT: Here it is over 24 hours later and we still have no power. 35,000 households/customers without power and it's not scheduled to be back on until at least 11:00 pm tomorrow (Thursday) night. I've been staying at a friends house, cleaning up messes and just trying to stay warm.

You're more than welcome to take it back. I don't want this. A power line went down about 10 minutes ago across the street from my house. I'm just waiting for my power to go off. I'll trade you for the 80 degree weather! :)
