What?!

Postby dancaravelle267 » Sat Dec 07, 2013 11:57 am

18 degrees, roads are iced over, no power since yesterday at 5am, and big beautiful trees snapping a over my house. I thought I lived in a warm climate!!! Oh ya, my caravelle is shivering with a blanket of ice!

Ouch.....that ICE can be awful. Our climate here (Yes Canada but you might be surprised we are warmer where I am than a lot of the Northern US states) produces a lot of freezing rain. The damage it causes to the trees is huge and then the cracked branches get bugs and deceases later so the damage continues. I would never be with out a good generator either. In 1998 we were almost 3 weeks with no power in the "BIG" ice storm of 98.
However I thought the smart folks in Texas knew better than to let the temperature fall that low. If this keeps up you may have to come north to get warm......and get driving lessons on winter driving!
Take care and be careful, hopefully your power is back on soon and nothing gets damaged.

The last of the ice out in the open melted a day or two ago. What a mess.
