Well here is some of the damage from the damn ice storm the trees are steadily falling.  We are a few of the people in this entire area with power.  We are going to be slammed tonight with this stuff again.  It hasnt stopped with the freezing rain.  As you can see these are trees that have broken and mangled my fence.  My poor dogs are going crazy.  I can stand at the door or watch tv and hear linbs snapping.  I dont expect that we will have power tonight...it has gone out once already and came back on.  Our town is literally the only one with power for like 20 miles.

Oh yeah this is Southeast Missouri.

 Wow! That is crazy!  Where do you live? I am in Cleveland, Ohio and we had a storm like that a few months ago.  It was really bad as well! I think ice is worse than snow.  It is so dangerous! I hope you get to keep you power.

Oh man...I'm in Ohio and we are just getting the snow end of that.  I hope it doesn't get much worse than that for you.

Wow, sorry your going thru this! And to think I was complaining about sub zero weather. I think I'll take the cold before an ice storm like that! Hope you can keep your power. Try to stay warm!!

OMG! I'm so sorry this is happening to you. We got some ice not a lot. We're expecting more tonight.

Do you have any updates?  I'm assuming you may not have power.

I'm in Southern Ohio and we've got snow and some ice, probably more tonight. I still have electric but right next door and across the street are out, so I'm lucky. My BIL's mom lives down the road and the electric company told them it could be out until up to 2 weeks. I hope I keep mine but at least I heat with gas and I also cook with gas so that is a plus!
