freezing rain

We had been warned, it was all over the news. Late Thursday night we would be hit by a winter ice storm with high winds and freezing rain. The forecast was accurate. Today we woke up to a beautiful disaster. Big branches, coated with thick ice, had broken off old trees, tearing down power lines and telephone posts as they fell onto the glazed roads.

All schools were closed. Indiana Tech sent a message to all employees - report to work at noon. Over 100,000 people were out of power, more than half of them still are. I had to use the rubber covered handle of a big hammer to knock half an inch of clear ice off the van's door, just to be able to get into the car and drive to work. EisVan.jpg
