Ice Storm Aftermath

We had an ice storm here in Western Kentucky. Everything was coated in about a 1/4 - 1/2 inch coating of ice. The internet went out here Tuesday and I couldn't get back online until today.
My oldest son's electric was out for 3 days and him and his wife and four little kids had to come stay here until it came back on. Thousands of trees snapped and broke or lost branches from the weight of the ice on them. Many are still without power. Thankfully here we only lost power for a hour or so Tuesday morning. The higher temperature today melted almost all the ice; and now the clean-up efforts begin.
