This week has been brutal in our little city. We knew we were going to get some nasty weather but we had no idea how bad it would get. Then it got worse. Tuesday morning we woke up early to rain pounding the windows and when Jeff opened the blinds it wasn't rain, it was ice. The rain/ice lasted most of the day. It continued through the night and through Wednesday. On Wednesday morning we lost power and we thought it was going to last overnight so we packed an overnight bag and headed to Suzie's. Fortunately it only lasted about 6 hours so we were able to come home in the early evening. We got over an inch of ice. Wednesday evening the snow came and we got about 6 inches of snow. Jeff had to help plow the Burger King lots so he left this morning at 3am and got home at 8am. School has been called off since Wednesday and they already called it off again for tomorrow. This storm has caused so many branches to fall and trees to basically crumble from the weight of the ice. It is so sad.

Jeff can add "snow plow" to his resume
