    Default Kentucky Icestorm

    So, who all here has heard of the news with the Western Kentucky Icestorm, and the other states [what is it...Kentucky, Illinois...I dunno]. Anywho, anyone here been in that but regained power? I have yet to regain power, but my dads boss regained power just this morning, so he let my family borrow his 7000W, plus letting us go shower at his house and store perishables that survived until we regain power.

    I haven't showered since Sunday. So...just about a week. -_-;; Generators are very noisy. The computer gets to stay on for another 30 or so minutes for me to alert my friends and communities about my condition of survival. If anyone actually cares.

    Oh, supposedly Obama was/is planning to send Federal Troops over. I guess we can debate about that?
    ---------
    EDIT:

    Dad's calling time on the generator for the computer, so I'll check back in several days, or maybe tomorrow. Power is estimated to come back on in about 20~30 days. Good bye.

    The beeb doesn't report it, so it can't be very important.

    Well, it is Kentucky after all. They are famous for being even less important then Tennessee. They don't suck as bad as Ohio, though, so I guess that's something.
    Ehhh, I dunno if I'll stick around. We'll see.

    I don't think the BBC is super concerned about American weather issues most of the time.

    Good to know you're okay, Chocobo. Washington had a big windstorm a few years back, but we got our power back in two days (though the fam was in Mexico when it returned).

    It sounds similar to Quebec's ice storm of '98, but not as big (more fatalities though, strangely). According to CBC things will be back to normal in a couple weeks; 400 000 people in Kentucky are still without power. There are 4600 National Guardsmen on the job.

    Well here in Oklahoma we got less freezing rain and more sleet and some snow at the very end. It was really beautiful. The trees had ice on them from the freezing rain and the ground was white from the sleet and snow. (That was a TON of sleet. There wasn't much snow at all.)

    However, in December of the year before last we had one of those insane ice storms.

    This is what my front yard looked like:



    Personally I loved the storm, because it kept me from having finals my first semester of college. XD And it was really beautiful.

    We lost a lot of branches though, and one of the trees got split and half and fell on one of our cars. Somehow the car is fine, though.

    We were lucky, our power was only out for a few days, but some were out for weeks.

    Exactly. Neither am I. The BBC international news feed defines what's newsworthy in my eyes. If it isn't part of it, it's probably not important. This little storm doesn't cut it.

    Then you probably shouldn't be commenting about it in this thread. Generally making useless comments that add nothing to conversation are spammy.

    Anyway, I have a friend who lives in Northern Kentucky, near Cin City. I noticed a few days ago his gmail status was something about "I saw Snow, and with him came Ice". At first I thought he was reading a new fantasy book. I should probably see if he's okay.

    This winter certainly has been a crazy one weather-wise.

    I'm questioning the inherent value of this thread. There is crazy weather at some point of the world more or less constantly. A blog post makes sense, What did you learn today also makes sense, but does making a thread for some storm out in the sticks that nobody who didn't get snowed on will remember more than a few days? I don't make a thread every time it snows in Sweden.
