    Default Ice Storm

    I hope everyone weathered the storm ok without damage to homes, cars, etc. I know there's lot of people without power and I hope it either returns quickly or you have someone close by with power who you can visit.

    I've got a ton of branches down in my yard, but thankfully no damage to the house. Branches were falling all night and kept waking me up they were so loud. The mess at my place isn't as bad as Ike, but it's close

    Billy I thought you would be out scraping ice/snow. Doesn't all landscapers freelance as snow/ice removal during the winter time?

    Oh man, I'm sorry to hear about the car Billy. Thankfully there's insurance for that and most importantly, you two are fine.

    Anyone know of a good tree removal service? Recommendations? I've got one down and one more that may need to be removed...

    Sorry about the car Billy!



    There is a nice sized branch that snapped off of the tree in the yard behind us. It is sitting in the tree tops and hasn't fell yet. If it does fall it will most likely take out the fence. I have heard alot of big branches falling since the ice started lastnight. We currently have power but it has gone out and kicked back on a few times.

    I took a walk the other night and the sky looked like fireworks, all the transformers blowing up, it was wild. I drove through St. Regis Park, yesterday and those homes were hit hard. trees down everywhere on houses, cars, etc. they are saying people in hte hikes point area are looking at 3-4 days w/o power. Mine came back on last night around midnight so we got lucky. hope every one is staying warm though
