    Just heard a big crash outside the house. This oak tree luckly feel away from the back of the house. Not good, the trees are loaded down with ice and we have a few days before its going to get better.

    Thats not good in a ice storm when trees start falling or breaking thats when it gets really dangerous.

    Man....looks like it broke down at the roots. I usually just see big limbs break, not at the base of the tree. We are getting a good dose of ice here also but not that bad yet. Stay safe and warm.....might need to cut that bad boy up if the power goes out.

    troy,
    We have been luckey sofar it has been about 33dreg. here today. The white pines are touching the groung but no majour damage yet.It looks like a repeat of last year , same conditions no frost in the ground if the ground is not frozen deep enough the roots will not hold the load of the ice. Usuall the trees with more limbs on one side are the first ones to go over. Besides that the boat ramps are getting to much ice. Stay warm inside for awhile. Do like me fish in your in your dreams ( write your own fishing regs.) Wake up with a stringer full. I GOTA THROW ANOTHER LOG ON THE FIRE. Keep your hooks sharp. Later Paul

    Boy, you're lucky that thing went west instead of east! Hope it doesn't get too bad - you all had a bad winter last year, don't need another one...

    yea its pretty bad here, we have currently got a tree limb touching a powerline which is sparking a pretty good spark, we have been on the phone with COMO electric all afternoon trying to get this fixed but its not lookin good, A friend of mine had a transformer blow right by there house about ten minutes ago. this just keeps getting worse and worse.

    Looks like the ice storm is going to miss most of Arkansas, thank goodness. I'm definitely not ready for something like that. Oops, I just heard it thunder. Hope it's nothing serious.

    They havent called yet Harold. I hope they do. But Let me assure you I will not make enough in 1 week spreading salt to get a new Sea Ark. Not even at 24 hrs a day.
