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...  :)

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.
