Was not expecting yesterday's ice storm... I've got major tree damage everywhere. Needed the chainsaw just to get out my driveway this morning. Needed it again to get back in about 3 hours later.
Luckily my power stayed on... That "rain all day" was turning to ice as it hit, then when it changed to snow it was wet heavy stuff. I'm at 1200-1300 feet elevation, so it's a little colder here.We had the ice in the morning then rain all day and then switched to snow. Snowing so hard about 7:30pm could hardly see to drive but still melting on roads. Then 3:30am to about 6am Friday morning power was out due to a tree on the line someplace after the wind picked up.
at one time I rented a place with a lotta Oak trees & used a sweeper to pick up the acorns.. put them in a old cast iron bathtub.. u should have seen the squirrels that come to get them.. I bet we had every one in the neighbored..I used to think this was a sure sign, let's hope so...
We got absolutely dumped on by acorns the past two autumns, but almost none this year. We got plenty of snow the last two winter, maybe we'll get a break this winter?
hope so too.. the first snowfall catches a lotta people off guard.. all I gotta do is put a battery in my machine.. may get it done today..Just found out we might get another 6-8” of snow tonight. At least I’m ready hope to God this time!
