    It's so crazy... I love it when it freezes like this... everything gets shut down and you can't go anywhere. haha
    I think the funniest part is everyone outside taking pictures... :lmao:

    Well, it is a lot MORE than we have ever had here in our "Winter 2006/2007" so far!
    Our temperatures don't even go down far enough to let us have anything remotely like ice or snow. They forecast another (+!)12°C for tomorrow here... :roll:
    And rain, rain, rain, RAIN .....................................

    We've had a couple of hard frost just before Christmas. and that's about it. It was -3 or so for a while as well but that was always during the day. I keep saying to people "we're going to be in for a very hard winter when it sets in" but I'm not so sure myself now. We've had rain today yet I was walking around at 4pm in a t-shirt.

    Snowed last night, today, three days ago, a week ago. I'm ready for summer or at least above freezing temps.

    My Cable has been down all morning... just got it back a few minutes ago.

    It got a ton worse over night, huge branches are breaking from the weight of the ice. Also, a car slid off a hill outside our house and got stuck in the mud on the side of the road... all our neighbors were outside watching as a few of the guys cranked it out of the mud. :lol:
    The road was so icy that one guy could grab the front of the truck and turn the truck on the road until the truck was facing the correct direction. :lol:

    While I was watching that... a huge branch fell about 10 feet away from me. (after that I was always watching above me... and never standing under any large branches)

    I took more photos this morning. I'll post them later when I get some time.

    btw, the ice is starting to melt... but I don't think we'll be able to go anywhere for another day or so.

    Heh...nice.

    It's funny....because you'd almost think that places that get like that often are always having snow days and stuff....

    ...but the further north you go, the less snow days there are, because everyone is equipped for it. So the weather you're having, that has everything shut down....would be just another miserable day for most that live as far north as me and further!
