Icicles ARE pretty hanging from trees, and eaves...  is it heavy enough to break down the trees?    we had an 'almost* 10" ice storm about 30 yrs ago here in north alabama...   Could hear the bent over pines snapping half way up their trunks by the minute.. taking down almost all the power lines.   We went 8 days without power that time..

Just enjoy the view, and try to survive the temps, and hopefully any damage isn't permanent...  Smiley

Make sure no branches or trees snap and land on or near your camaro! When I lived in washington state, anytime there was a big storm with wind I always was strategic with where I had to park my cars outside because of falling branches/trees.

Good point! Maybe I will park it next to a tree and hope that something happens and I can finally get the bodywork finished,lol! Just kidding. Right now, all I care about is the electric staying on, wind is picking up and temps are dropping as I type.

Shoveling our sidewalks and cleaning our streets again this morning.    Thank God we didn't get the 9 inches of snow the weather forecast was predicting.
4 inches is plenty.    In all honesty though;  I can't complain, we haven't had much snow this winter, it has been pretty good so far.
Just counting the days until the arrival of spring rains, to wash the snow melt off of our streets, and.............our first drives in the Camaro's  of 2014.

Greetings to all Americans with ice and snow; from  snow covered Omaha, NE

We made it through this last storm with only 3" of snow, and a skim coat of ice. Perfect for keeping the snow from drifting.

I hope you have a safe way to stay warm; be very careful with fuel-based heaters inside.  I KNOW how no power sucks, as I've got more than a week twice, once in/after an ice storm, and another 3 yrs ago after the Tornado day.   A generator is a good thing to have ... but generally you have to HAVE it Before the problem hits and the stores sell out.

I think I have it pretty good. I have a wood stove and propane, ventless heat. Also, a small generator to keep the fridge, coffee maker and tv/dvd going. Life is good.

Been there, done that - installed a 20-KW Generac fully-automatic natural gas standby generator system in the summer of 2003 ( 3 weeks before the famous 3-day "northern grid" failure - timing is everything  Smiley ) Has kept us nice and comfy many times since then when DTE (Detroit Edison), our Mickey-Mouse electric utility, has gone dead, and we don't even need to be home.  Grin

That is money well spent John!! Guy, I maintain his car collection, has one just like that. Here are few other non-Camaro related pics of general interest: My Tolkheim gas pump and 36 Caddy.

JohnZ definitely did a nice thing with the Generac.. Smiley    I considered the same unit when I built my home, but I let build schedule and $$ pressures put it off til 'later'...  and we all know how 'later' goes.. Smiley

JohnZ:  Would you change anything about that if you were doing it over?  the size? or brand? or ??

I live in Minnesota so we have had plenty of snow (40 plus inches so far) and more below zero nights than i can remember. So much for global warming i would say. Well stay warm guys, this cold weather gives us more shop time right ?  Smiley

Nope, the unit has been quite satisfactory, and has paid for itself more than once. It starts itself up once a week for a ten-minute diagnostic run, and in eleven years all it has required is one starter and a battery.
