09 Ice Storm Pics
« on: January 26, 2012, 06:24:53 PM »
Here are a couple of pics from the ice storm we had here in KY in 09. I have not ever witnessed anything like it in my lifetime and hope not to ever again We were without power for 15 days. Good ole propane stove and burners for hot water. Kids took baths in an old No.2 washtub. LOL....it was a site for sure.

I am glad I am looking at pictures and did not have first hand knowledge-- Ice storms make beautiful pictures but bad memories.

Cool pics--- now if you could add the sound of the tree's cracking and limbs falling, it would take me back to our ice storm here in IN. @--0--0123

Several of your replies brought back memories....the trees cracking....for the first 2 days after it hit....you could not count to 5 without hearing a "snapping" of a limb, or tree, breaking. The generator, that I didn't have to begin with. Had to rush to Evansville Home Depot and "catch" a delivery of them before anyone got to them. The only ones to be found in about a 75 mile radius. I got us some power up and running....just 45 minutes before my Steelers took the field against the Cardinals in the Superbowl. Close one there. LOL...We had kerosene heaters and of course the propane stove and burners to cook and heat water with. Just the most amazing thing to see a whole town shut down. We have around 20,000 people in the town I live nearest to. A couple of grocery stores actually had generators on hand and were able to stay open and provide much needed food. I know I just about, well, #2 when I heard them on the radio say it could be WEEKS before power would be restored. I also very much remember the guys from Norther Illinois that had come down to help Kenergy with all the pole and line replacement. I saw their lights shining up the driveway....took them some fresh fried chicken and hot cocoa...next thing I new my Mothers' house had lights on inside it. These guys took it upon themselves to fix the pole and line that had gotten knocked down that ran into her house. No telling how much money, let alone the waiting lists you had to wade through just to get an electrician to get to you. I found them guys on another road the next day.....it weren't cocoa that had for them that time and they were very thankful for my visit. LOL.
