Ice storm hit on January 26, was 4 days before we could get down our road, all poles were snapped as well as the trees. Went 18 days with no power, we ate good though! The freezer was full of meat and thank goodness for gas grills! All of Western KY was without power, there were 2 hour waits at gas stations, which were few, no power to run the pumps, places ran out of gas, kerosene and propane. We did have a 60 lb propane tank for my wall heater in garage, I fashioned a stand and brought it into the house, stayed about 70 degrees inside. The worst part was no running water, we have a well. There was a buying frenzy of generators everywhere, I figure this summer money will be tight and I’ll be able to get one for a song, hopefully will never need it but I want to be a good boy scout!
The pictures are of our yard, and road, it will be years to clean up all the damaged trees.
