Well, here in Tennessee, we got hit with a big ice storm. It started on Friday night, and we lost power about 3:00 am Saturday morning. We didn't get it back on until last night around 9:00 pm - so three, looonnngg days without power - yikes! Saturday morning, laying in bed, we heard such strange noises. Ice sheets sliding off the roof and hitting the ground. The creaks of trees bending over from the weight of the ice. Then the cracks and snaps of the trees succumbing to the weight. Then we heard a huge "crack - snap - boom" and felt the house shake. Needless to say, this got us out of bed in a hurry. A tree had snapped off and fallen down across our back deck and up against the patio doors. It was one of those good news/bad news scenarios - the bad news was it crunched our deck, the good news is it didn't come crashing through the patio door and into the dining room. That would have really been a mess. Oh well, it kept my husband busy for a while and he got to "bond" with all the other men in our neighborhood who were likewise out with the chainsaws!!
