A pretty amazing series of photos of this most recent storm. Many midwesterners still have no power.

bigmac,

thanks for sharing the link


reminds me of our ice storm of 1999-2000 I think it was

it's amazing how one's world gets turned upside down during a major icestorm....

we were out of water & electric off and on for 3 weeks.... pretty humbling experience

Without power in the COLD.....that's horrible. We usually get outages after a Hurricane, but it's HOT then.
