the weight of the ice on the power lines
all the trees have dropped many limbs.
it will take years for them to grow and restore.
this is a road with every power line down from the heavy ice
No power, no generators to be found.

The ice is melting thank goodness, and the water is being caught
in buckets to use for washing up with etc. No candles,
or batteries or basics in stores. Fema is providing water and MRE's (?) or
packaged meals from soldiers, they will get hers tomorrow.
I've sent many packages with radios,
tv, batteries, lamps that even though were shipped overnight are
still not there. Probably due to road conditions. My mom is very brave
and strong, despite what she thinks. I've always read that one can get
used to anything in time, and with patience, I think it's true.
