Kentucky is dealing with the ice storm of 2009. What a mess ... It all started on Tuesday with 4 plus inches of snow - then 2 inches of ice - then another 4 plus additional inches of snow.

It may look pretty but it sure was not fun to deal with.

The neighbors tree ended up on my roof. They are out there cutting it down as we speak.
I was without electric for about 38 hours and let me tell you it was cold! I almost threw in my hat and left the house last night ... I was just too cold and miserable. But as my brother arrived to pick me up a miracle occurred and the electric came back on.

Internet access has been spotty and cable non-existent. Now I just heard they are calling for a 'monster' storm on Monday. Will it ever end?

You're right, Karen, this has been a tough winter almost everywhere. The days are getting longer though which is some consolation and a sign that spring is coming eventually! Hang in there, and stay warm! I hope your electricity cooperates.

Karen, I have seen in the news a few states without power. Not a good time of year to be without electricty, then again, no time is good. I too look forward to spring. We have been getting snow and ice too, just not much at one time. Stay warm!

Sounds like you have had your share of winter weather. It isn't so bad when you can be inside and warm but cold with no electricy, not a fun day at the beach. glad you made it thru, and got warm. TTFN

Looking at all this snow is making me incredibly jealous.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I live just south of Erie, Pa. When you had 4 inches of snow, we had 12, then ice, then 12 more. I just keep dreaming of a beautiful beach and warm sand!
