My husband's boss called Friday night and told him that the shop would be closed on Saturday. Good thing it was, we are stuck here on the homestead.
We got 6" of snow. First we got 1" of snow, than about 2-3" of sleet on top of it. Then came the rest of the snow. We lost power Friday night/Saturday morning. Not sure how long power was out. I wondered through the dark house with just a small candle and turned the stove on, and made sure that the children had blankets covering them. I was asked if we kept warm in the mobile home. It does get chilly in here. The age of this house doesn't help, and it is not up to any code that means it is better for it to be here, than in Florida. We went to bed in complete darkness and the power came back on in the sunlight.
Our main road out is blocked due to power poles, not just lines, down in the road. Our two side roaads are impassable unless you have a large truck and four wheel drive. My husband tried to make it into ton yesterday, he informed me that it was possible, but a tad scary.
Here is a picture of the wind blown ice wrapped around one of our small ash trees. We had to climb over the gates to get to the livestock, the gates are frozen shut as well as have medium sized snow banks pushed up against them.
