Photo gallery of our ice storm!

For some insight into what we dealt with during the storm, go here. You have to have Adobe Flash
Player. There are 40 photographs.

In the photos, you might think you're seeing snow. No. Ice piled.

Oh My! I've seen seen sites like those here in Kansas and in Oklahoma. It's good to know that you are ok.

Old Chief Paduke looks pretty chilly there, Katie.

Isn't amazing how something so devastating can have so much beauty?

That's not really Chief Paduke, Connie. It's one of the three statues of the Lewis & Clark sculpture that's on the lawn of the quilter's museum. He sure looks chilly. You might recognize the front of the Market House, which was just across where we sat on the bench when you and Kim visited.

Yep, beauty amid devastation. In the sunlight it was dizzying. So much sparkle it was almost hard to look at it.

I did recognize the building Katie. Looks a lot different than when we were there.
Isn't there a statue of Chief Paduke somewhere in town? Seems like I remember seeing one at some time...or maybe I dreamed it.

Yeah, downtown where we were sure was chillier than the day we were there.

No, you didn't dream it. There is a Chief Paduke statue, but it's more in town, I think, on Jefferson street.
