I can't take credit for the photos, Ray. They are photos taken by folks in my area and submitted to the local daily paper. The paper compiled the gallery. However, they do convey EXACTLY what it was like here during the storm.

amazing photos Katie, thanks for sharing..not sure I saw them all, it was taking so long for each photo to load for me...how many photos are there. I posted some photos from my version of that ice storm on my profile page. We really didn't have much damage on our little farm, just lost power for 5 1/4 days and slid around a lot!

Katie, I'm glad you went through this that well..

some pics just show a peaceful winterland, but some really show the power of the storm..

Yes, cara. Quite a lot of power. The hours and hours of the sounds of the trees and limbs breaking was horrific. Imagine how it sounds when you snap a twig. You know, the "pop" it makes. Now, multiply that many many times. It sounded like gunfire. Especially when the 18-inch limbs and big trees broke outside my window. I've never been so scared in my life.
