A year and two days ago on January 27, 2009 we were hammered by several inches of ice and it sucked.
Flashback here the ICE STORM tag
It took me a couple of long not so fun months to clean up all the downed wood and limbs from the many trees in the yard and still I have a lot of widow makers hanging from the tree even though I had 100′s fall during the year. All the trees were hit hard and hopefully they will recover, but between Hurricane Ike in September of ’08 and the Ice Storm of Jan-Feb of ’09 they were hammered.
I cut and stacked wood most of the summer and still have recently fallen widow makers that need to be cut up. I’ve been burning wood all winter and I’m burning some right now and just to piss the liberals off I enjoying every warm producing ton of CO2 they are pumping out.
When the deep freeze was all over our power was out for about 2 weeks, we ended up with about $7500.00 in property damages and didn’t receive a dime in FEMA money. However the fire department did drive by one day while I was cutting wood and pawn off some emergency rations nobody in my area wanted since they being dumb country hicks were all prepared for the storm, as was I. You can only wonder what the educated class would do. The rations were ok, nothing to write home about not any better than a MRE and wouldn’t hold a candle to C-RAT. I didn’t care one way or the other if I got them or not, I had a generator, plenty of food, firewood and fresh water so I was set … I like to call it personal responsibility you that stuff people do instead of waiting on the government to do it.
But tonight/today (which is way I thought of this) we are suppose to get 7″ to 10″ of snow. It is to start something after midnight – which is about 2 hours from now. So what the hell with all this snow and ice, I’m in the south? Where is the heat? Where is the humidity? Where is the global warming when you need it? Somebody get Copenhagen on the phone, someone call Al Gore I’ve got a beef.
Oh well I have food, water, firewood and a generator just in case.
