Default Worst Ice Storm on Record

Overnight thurs to friday most of us in New England experienced the worst Ice storm on record. I am one of the fortuanate few to have power at my house.Driving around today looked like a war zone with all the trees and lines that were down.

I wish I had brought a camera with me.

Worse then the one about ten years ago that saw trees in upstate NY exploding from the cold? The one that was so bad power companies from up and down the east coast sent trucks and teams to help?

Here in central Jersey we lost power for 5 days, and we were the lucky ones. Some neighborhoods didn't have power for almost two weeks.

That sucked !

Wow. Reminds me of a storm we had in Kansas City 6 or 7 years ago. I had 3 of the 5 trees in my yard come down that night.

These pictures don't quite show the whole devastation that is out there.not having power
is only a minor inconvenience, some lost there homes,vehicles, and I'm sure some even their lives.

Now is this storm worse then other parts of the country, I don't know. It's being reported as the worst the New England area has seen.Those of you who have been through this in other areas can sympathize to the scope of what people are enduring up here. I count myself very fortunate to only have lost power for about 12 hours and even luckier my neighbors behind me still are without power.

We got it in my town too. I live in the second highest point of jersey. We got teh same storm as you guys did. I know how you feel. I've been cutting trees for the past three days, and I'll be going to work tomorrow and probably sent on storm duty up by you guys. See you soon probably. Keep safe guys, and don't touch any wires. You never know when its live or dead.

I lost power Thursday night and listened to trees breaking all night. It certainly is a mess. Woke up to trees down all over the place and the streets in-passable. 4 days later, and I'm still without power. I'm lucky enough to have a small generator to keep the heat and water going. They were using plow trucks to clear debris off the road.... right up until they get to a downed power line...

There sure is lots of plug making material laying around.
