Winter Storm 2009 Day 2

We woke up this morning to the sound of trees crashing down. It is a VERY scary sound. So far we still have power, but it is a matter of time before we lose it I think. WE have a huge tree in the back that is already resting on the power lines and the snow is coming down like crazy, adding more and more weight to the limbs.

I have taken a shower, washed all the dishes, and have a hug pot of veggie soup on, so that we will have that ready if needed.

The waiting is what is driving me crazy. I am keeping my laptop charging and keeping my phone on charge so if we do lose power at least I will have those for a while.

I just went outside and there is about 3 inches of snow on the ground now and it is still falling. The wind is blowing and the trees are making scary noises and getting closer and closer to the ground.

I wish we had turned tail and fled to AL yesterday but I guess if we did not stick this one out, we would have another one in the future to sit through.

How is everyone else doing?

Holding out pretty good :D
It's calmed down quite a bit but we're supposed to get another spurt in a couple of hours

The rest of my tree fell this morning. Thankfully, it fell the opposite direction of my car!

Glad you are home safe and sound, Natalie. Gads--you have really had some horrible weather. We had a TAD of snow and sleet today--but nothing like what you are getting. Hope you don't lose your electricity. Take care and stay warm.
Hugs,
Betsy

i've been fortunate enough to not have to go out any since the storm hit. So far, we still have power, so I am thankful for that. Lots of my neighbors keep getting their cars stuck. Hopefully you don't lose power... back in 03's ice storm, we lost power for over a week, and had trees coming down all around our house... not fun at all.

hope you are ok! They just got our power back on about 10 min ago.
