    Here is one more pics. If it gets as cold as they say tonight,in the morning will be when things get real hairy. Wife came home from work and said there was limbs laying on the roads and there was one tree that was almost on the power line. I took the Rubicon down to the foot of the hill and got the wife so the truck would at least be off the hill.

    It is raining here and I hope we don't loose power too. A few years ago in the early 90's for 8 days and we managed just fine. We heat with a insert and if the power goes off we open the doors on the insert and still have heat. If the power goes we just turn the house into a camping area with Coleman stove, lanterns,cots sleeping bags and such. Pennie said she enjoyed the times we camp out right here in the house.

    The electricity has been flicking on and off at times here so I figure it will bite the dust before the night is over. Still raining and the Icicles are getting longer on stuff power lines included.

    We still have 5+" of snow and everything is coated with ice here and its still coming down a steady freezing rain. They said .5"-1.0" of ice and 2-4" of snow still left for us, long ways to go!!! Our road has been plowed twice but is still covered with snow & ice. Power is still on, hope it stays!
    Pic shows what we got accomplished today...:roll_eyes::wink::smile2::cool2:

    Talked to the wife and she said we are forecast to get half inch or so of ice tonight. I leave Deadhorse Alaska tommorrow to come home. It is -30 with a wind chill of -60 below right now. Looking forward to getting home and having a fire in the fireplace.

    The freezing rain is still coming down here. Supposed to keep up till tomorrow afternoon then switch to snow and get 2-4" more snow. Hope the power stays on. I talked to Danny earlier and Ken lost power earlier. Saw on the news it may be late tomorrow night or Thursday before they get it back. Pretty bad storm here...Pretty but bad...:confused2:

    We survived the storm with our power still on. Ken is still without power and may be for a while. Looks like we've got another bad one coming the beginning of next week...Is it Spring yet???
