Ice Storm 2011

Earlier this week we were iced in (not snowed in). We spent all day Monday in the house, going outside from time to time to do things such as: check up on the status of the sleet and the ice, break open the frozen trash can, play in the driveway and the road. Video time!


Cali had a blast playing in the ice. If you turn the volume up high, you can actually hear the sleet coming down. Video time!

The satellite signal went out - there was ice on the receiver which apparently messed the signal up, so we tried to knock the ice off. Well, Norm got up on the ladder and literally tried to knock the ice off, I held the ladder and recorded the moment. We were not successful...

Norm's poor car lives outside (as opposed to my car that lives in the garage). The Escape had a nice solid layer of ice. At one point on Tuesday he cranked it so it would start thawing out. We forgot about it and realized it 45 minutes later that the car was still running. It was still mostly frozen.

Although the weather was horrible, we did get to spend two full days together - in a row - something that happens once in a blue moon when all the stars and planets line up (or when the world freezes over, I guess we can say).

Today is Friday and there are still good amounts of ice in the yard, our roof is still all white, and parts of our winding and hilly road are out of control. I think they are predicting normal Georgia weather for the weekend - finally!

Enjoyed seeing the videos. Know both of you will be excited when it is all gone. Like us the south is not meant for this kind of Mother Nature! Pretty to look at when it is coming down but sure is a mess once it is on the ground.
Love to you both.
