The weight of the ice and snow on the trees is just incredible - most tree limbs are completely bent to the ground due to the weight of the ice. I am praying that branches won't start snapping and falling when things begin to melt. The meteorologists are predicting that the area will begin to thaw out on Saturday and Sunday, when temperatures get into the 30's and 40's - maybe even 50's on Sunday.
We are still without cable and internet at home, so I thought I'd put this post up while I have access at work. Here are some pictures:
The public works crew who cleared the branches from Justin and Charis' yard and the street - they were on the scene much faster than we anticipated, which was a good thing because the branch fell across the entire street
Chad and Charis, both proudly displaying their bellies. We were so glad Charis didn't go into labor during the storm! She is due any day.
