Holy shit. We had all these awesome trees at the new house and they are loosing limbs left and right literally. Pictures don't really do it justice. We have probably 15 trees in our yard and over half of them have lost 3 or 4 large limbs. We had to clean up the driveway with a fucking handsaw. More tomorrow.


First day on the driveway.


About to loose the rest of this one.


Next day on the driveway.


Little over 1/2 inch on the trees so far.

Pardon the crappy quality. Filmed with the digital camera. Was lucky to get it though. We've been hearing that haunting creaking, cracking and falling limbs for two days around the neighborhood and caught in action. I wish the sound would do it justice though. It was almost thunderous.

not nearly that bad here in MA but we had the usual horrific 1/2 inch on the roads and usual town sanders and salt trucks out 12 hours too late. Only caused something like 9 hours of back-ups and 50 accidents. As to be expected. 2 hour delays for schools. Not like we didnt see it coming for 3 days or anything. Local DPW didnt get out on the roads until 7am. How nice of them.

Fortunately, we have no traffic here to speak of. And we were actually off work today and all schools were closed.

The local tv said an estimated 600000 are without power. Ice storms were always fun to see afterwards...not to drive in...or clean up after.

dude
with all those trees
you need to own a chainsaw
and a pole/lopping saw
and a rope saw
trees are awesome
but they do need maintenance

and i highly recommend buying a generator
for power outages
just my opinion

Good Luck with the clean-up

We are definitely buying a chainsaw for the cleanup. This is just our first house and never needed one before. We have underground power here so are sort of lucky there, but I know we should still have a generator.

Pretty much the same thing here in NE Kansas.

Why the hell do the utility companies keep stringing wire above ground in heavy freeze zones? Every couple years there's massive outtages because the ice, and you'd think that they would wise up and get that stuff underground.
