The pond made it thru the storm (good thing for the generator), but not so good for a few trees. One of the driveways was blocked. Here are a few pics of trees in the back yard. We just got power back yesterday. Still a lot more cleanup to go. We have lived here for 15 years and this was the worst tree damage we have had. Not just us, many homes in the area.

This area is normally wide open to go to the mature dumping area, could not even just walk thru it. My bobcat trailer is in the lower left, hard to see. It is not damaged at all but I can't get it out of the area at the moment.

There is a fence around the entire perimeter for the horses, hard to even see any of the fence

Oh my gosh, holy cow! I have been wondering how things look up north of us. Hope things get back to normal soon, sorry about all those trees. Thanks for showing us your part of the storm. Take care.

Downed trees mean fire wood, new growth, and lots of work. You may be surprised at just what makes it through ok. I’ve seen trees bent over under ice, and once it melted, the healthy ones were back to normal, and the trees that were down were from sick trees.

Wow. I had some arborvitae that got damaged with the wet snow and ice, but nothing like what you experienced. Hope you did't lose too many trees,

Wow, thank heavens for your generator. My daughter lives in NJ and the estimate for her power to be restored is 3-14-18 :eek:

Beautiful white stuff but that heavy wet snow is a mean one! Hope your trees perk up soon. We don't get a lot of snow here usually but when that heavy stuff falls I am running around out there w/a broom trying to help as many trees, bushes as possible from bending till they break.

I am imagining you outside with your broom @j.w . It made me smile. :rolleyes:

So what you're saying is that I should probably not mention is 72 here?

:D
We hibernate in the winter but we get occasional nice days in the 40's maybe 60's . IN Texas you call a 110 hazy hot n humid one of those occasional nice days not my cup of tea.
