Snow day #4 (2005-6).

For the record, snow day #3 was January 25th.

The snow started Saturday afternoon, huge flakes, and just got worse as the day went on. By the time I went to bed, the power had gone off multiple times, we had tree branches down, our phone line was lying across the backyard (although our phone still worked), and our cable/internet was out.

On Sunday, the wind started and all of the highways in this area were closed. We couldn't have left town if we'd wanted to. About 11:30pm Sunday night, the power went off and stayed off until just before 5am Monday morning.

I got up this morning at 5:15am when one of Ice's co-workers called. Several phone calls and road checks later, despite the fact that the highways were still closed, Ice's boss said, "Wait until 9am, then take a backroad in." I was, and still am, extremely pissed off.

Pictures of the backyard, taken late Sunday afternoon from my office window, of the damage caused by the heavy snow. The snow is much deeper now than it was then.
