Ice storm

We had an ice storm Thursday night and Friday morning. All together we got about 1/2 inch of ice. The power was only out for about 4 hours. I think that a line was down in the neighborhood because after the power went out, you could occasionally see a very bright red glow/flash down the road. The cable was out until this morning. I loved it. Katie did not see the humor in no cable TV and no internet.
The above picture is cockeyed so that I could get the whole branch in the picture. We lost one other 4 inch dia. branch that hit out bedroom window and ripped the screen, but other than that, no real damage. We were very fortunate!
Tonight all that ice is still on the trees and lines, and the wind is getting pretty gusty due to a cold front moving through. The temperature dropped 15 degrees in 1 1/2 hours.
