zilya: (snow)
Final tally: 6-8 inches of wet snow, oak trees down everywhere, one giant limb as big around as me is fallen across a power line 2 doors down. No electricity till they get that dealt with first. Funny, after the ice storm everyone on our street seems to have a generator :)

This storm seems to have caused major carnage amongst the oak trees- their leaves were all still on, and green, not even turned yet around here. And i guess they're more brittle and weren't used to that weight. So, big oak branches all over the place. Poor trees. But we should have lots of firewood for the taking, if we can go about with a chainsaw and wheelbarrow sometime soon. Also our willow tree lost many big branches, I'm glad we trimmed it back from overhanging the house last year. Everything fell straight down into mid-yard and didn't hit the house or rig.

Our street is at the end of the run of electric wires, and the branch is near the end too, so we won't be a priority for the work crews clearing lines and restoring power.
