Paducah Ice Storm

Here are some artistic shots the day before the really bad part of the Paducah area ice storm. This was Tuesday morning 1/27 and we have some pictures and videos of the aftermath of the storm that night. The worst parts were Tuesday and Wednesday nights. We left to drive back to Washington on Wednesday morning and so missed the worst part.

We really wanted to get a good sleep on Tuesday night that was not happening. Between the trees cracking and dropping, to the sirens, then the chainsaws at 5am, we probably only got about two hours of sleep total. It was an event I do not think I'll ever forget.

And here are some other pics and videos on the web. The aftermath a few weeks later looked like a tornado or hurricane had come through the area. Some people were without power for up to 8 weeks!
