this is day 2 – cleaning off the car and this is the most important tool needed with 1+ inch of ice, what was cool was the way it broke in big chunks and left the car looking shiny and bright like it went through the car wash. we had a 9 hour ice storm 12/11/08 that left us without power for 6 days. The Monadnock Region of New Hampshire (NH) was one of the hardest hit areas in this 4 state storm. At its height, over 1.5 mil people were without power with over 400,000 of them in NH. Some parts hope to have electric by the new year. Poles snapped in half, transformers blew, trees tangled up in lines bent over and when 3 days later as the inch or more layer starting really melting snapped back in to place taking lines with them.
