Ice storm aftermath
What a long night of snap, crackle and pop! Trees down everywhere, ice thickly coating every surface and still no phone or electric power...
it's awfully cold!
Roads both ways to the house were closed by fallen trees, and no sign of any crews, (they are working hard on top of the mountain)- so a few of my neighbors got together and we spent the afternoon clearing out the driveways and the roads. I'm bummed that I had to cancel my afternoon class in Poughkeepsie. With the winds still strong and limbs dangling, and until I get power, I just didn't feel confident setting off on a long drive and returning after dark.
