St. Lawrence County, NY ice storm!!!
Just one of the first shots I got minutes from losing power yesterday, 01/13/2012 as the ice and snow came over us.. Yes an ice storm,, nothing compared to the one that hit us in January 1998. That one took power from folks for up to 28 days.. this one.. 14,000 people without power for 7 hours.. hmmmmmmmmm,, 7 hours.. there is that number 7 again..
I took this one in our back yard 10 min’s after losing power,, and it was an hour into the heavy, wet snow falling on top of the ice we got over night..
You can see the trees falling over and limbs hanging to the ground.. and it kept getting worse..
My sister who lives 10 miles away never lost power,, my adult children all live 12 miles away and lost their power.. it was very strange how the pattern of outages were..
We are campers and survivors. and I was prepared. when Hubby got home after his long drive home in the slush in wind 4 1/2 hours drive.. chicken and dumplings were on the stove and hot coffee awaited and my welcoming arms for a hug he got home safe..
