5 o'clock news here in western WA... pictures almost made me cry. We didn't get much snow, but the sequence of the weather resulted in everything being covered in ice.

Someone took down a light pole in Seattle with the right front corner of thier black A8.

And a lovely vid of a silver A4 sliding sideways down a hill and right into a parked Subaru.

I do it in about two feet of snow. Well, maybe 30 on my snowboard.

Freezing rain on top of 3" of soft powder means heavy trees. I have two trees down in my driveway, about 5 big ones down in the back yard. There's power lines laying in the road in 2 places within a mile of my house.

I'll post some pictures of my truck later. It's under a 1/4 layer of ice. The power is out, but the phone line still works and I have some laptop battery left so I figured I'd post.

What a way to use what little battery power you have left.....
Ice does suck, i remember when i was in school we had two weeks off from school because there was about 3 inches of ice everywhere. And over half of the kids that went to my school live in the middle of nowhere where the plows don't go.

Yeah ice sucks in Washington because it usually ends up destroying a lot of trees. I remember in '96 when that ice storm rolled in; my stepfather lost a bunch of trees that year on his property. Hope nothing is damaged, and that you have a good chainsaw...

Also that storm caused me to miss my flight back to school tuesday, resulting in me missing the first day of classes today. The worst snow storm in 8 years and it happens on the day I have to fly out to go back to school; damn my luck...
