The 2009 ice storm took place a year ago this week. Everywhere we looked we saw branches down and large trees torn in half. Our three large trees near our house, including a huge Mulberry received the most damage on our property, although most of our trees were damaged. With the downed trees, the majority of the area was without power for over a week. We were fortunate. Our power was only off for four hours.
In the next month and a half, we spent many hours chainsawing and dragging the limbs to the road for county pick up. We did what we could, and then left the remaining damage to the experts. Even though we called our tree guys right after the storm, due to all of the damage in the area they weren’t able to get to our trees until July!
But even with all of the damage here and in our part of the world, there was so much beauty to behold.
A snow storm is forcasted for this area tomorrow. They assured us that it’s not another ice storm. I am thankful.
It’s hard to believe it has been one year already. This storm was so traumatic I still remember it too. I am in northern Tennessee but hubby was in southern Indiana and they lost power for days. What a mess. I too am grateful tomorrow’s storm will not be so bad (I hope:)
Tina, We’re in southern Indiana! Thanks for stopping by.
Looks like the Paduca, Ky area ! Every time we drove from Kansas City to Atlanta we would marvel at the damage and how long it was taking for the road crews to cut the damage down along I24 ! It looks like Ok City was hit this past weekend!
