Just got power back on after going out overnight. Not any real snow to speak of,but the sleet and misty rain overnight set up icing in the trees,which have been snapping with too frequent regularity. One big branch from a pine knocked out our lines around 3:00am this morning, Georgia Power got that one fixed by 9:00am,only to leave and have a larger tree take it out again 30 minutes later,only in a harder to reach location. We have a gas stove in the living room which has kept the house warm,and GP just finished up with that one,therefore I can communicate. Forcast for tonight is more mist/sleet,and very low temps,setting us up for a repeat of power loss. May have to go stay in Gainesville,Ga. or into SC for the night.
The wife was out walking our two new pups,Major&Minnie,around the front part of our mountain yard,and had just got them in when a very loud 'snap' signalled a huge pine branch falling and hitting where they had just been. Thank you Lord!

Sunshine out this morning in NE Georgia mountains,and all around it looks like a crystal forest. You could hear the limbs and branches falling all night,which was,and always is,spooky sounding. As they came down,you would pray they didn't hit the repaired power lines. Thank God the winds they forcast for last night didn't materialize,or lots more would be down. Maybe the thaw will start here shortly.Spent a few hours at dusk yesterday with my latest new toy,a Stihl chainsaw,helping a neighbor remove a very large pine that had fallen over his driveway. It barely missed their house and missed her car by about two feet. When they get heavy enough from the ice and start to fall,you make damn sure you're out of the way.
Hopefully February will bring us some warmer weather.

Glad you're safe, warwoman. Those falling trees and branches are so unpredictable. Be careful!

Anyone looking at the storm set up for the east coast this Friday/ Saturday?
Also any idea on the SW Virginia time frame for something hitting tomorrow?
