I can't imagine getting 1/2" to 1" of ice! Stay safe everyone! Try to be prepared the best you can.

Just walked around the house. Ice is accumulating on the branches and we have just started the day of ice. The Leland Cypress near the house looks okay - a little sagging branches and some laying on the roof, but not large branches...which are below the roof line.

Fireplace is going. I have a gas fireplace and wanted to get it going to heat the ceramic logs in case it quickly becomes my only heat source.

We're getting freezing rain with a mix of sleet at times. I sure wish it would switch over to snow. Don't care about snow. Ice...don't like that stuff. I have a steep driveway and live up on a hill. My driveway is a sheet of ice. However I parked our 4wd vehicle down at the street level for an emergency.

Stays safe folks. Looks like this one will be memorable for GA people.

Power outage numbers are jumping up now. Winds are also a factor with the ice. I'm watching tall pines swaying all over. All this, and we still have all day of continuing precipitation.

Right now...we're just getting a ton of sleet. Others around the area are without power, but we're still up & running.

We're supposed to change over to snow tonight. With trees iced and branches sagging, the snow and wind will likely not help matters. My parents lost power due to fallen tree branches; however they had a crew quickly out there and regained power in a couple of hours.

Hope all you folks down south get through it OK and that the electrical outages are few and short.

We've had a few good ones up here over the years, and at least for me, it's just a little bit of a PITA. I'm ready for the snow we're supposed to get starting Thursday afternoon.
1. Plow hooked up to the truck.
2. Full tank of gas in the Ski-Doo.
3. Extra 30 Pack of Bud on standby.
4. Got the makings for a big pot of chilli just in case I gotta use "gas" to keep the bed warm.

I'll say this after getting home shortly ago. Those of us here who get mad when folks say southerners can't drive in snow?!?!? What I witnessed today makes Darwin a happy man with many future members not far away.

I know plenty here drive safely in inclement weather, I do as well. But my god the stupid was strong with some today.

Ice storms mess with everyone. Some areas are expecting 1 inch of ice accumulation on trees.

Fortunately most people are not driving. We have no reason to go out for quite some time.
