Ice Storm - Dec 9-12 2007

I'm just posting a quick message to let everyone know we are alright.

The following image was taken early Monday morning.
That's about 1/2" of ice on the fence.
It was about twice that when the storm finally ended.

I am trying to feed the horses in this one.
The tree limbs normally are not there.
The ice eventually broke a large limb that I've yet to clear.
It was not exactly the best of conditions.

Things are much improved today. The
corral is a muddy mess.
That's Jett who is talking to me.
I think that's his mama to the left.

We left the house on Monday to feed and check of Judy's mother. The electricity went off while we were out and we couldn't get back in. So that's where my laptop and my cellphone stayed during the storm - without me.

We spent the last two nights at dad's house where we had heat thanks to the generator I installed in 2002. But we had no running water. Early this morning we got power back at dad's house. Late this afternoon the power was restored at Judy's and her mom's. Got Internet a little while ago. We're pretty fortunate as there are still a lot of people without power and heat and water and everything else. We have a lot of damage everywhere.

Will post some more when I can.

Thanks to all of my blog friends. I'm trying to catch up.

I'm glad to hear that you and Judy weathered the ice storm. It looked really bad on the news. Those are beautiful horses!

I was just ready to E-Mail You, but figured you couldn't get on-line.

My Uncle n Nichols Hills is shuffling around relatives. My Cousin who is in O.C. to bury her Mother, and close down her Estate, is staying with him! She lost electricity at her Mom's house, and so did my other Cousin, so they are staying eith her In-Laws.

He (My Uncle, 82!) says he wears his cleets on his golf shoes, when walking outside? Pretty clever.

How is the new, or near new House?

Your two Videos await you on my "Blog" of the new Commerical Development here. Take care, stay warm!

Glad to hear you are safe. I figured you didn't have power. I know your area was hit pretty hard. Good thing you had that generator. Better take it to the new place.
