Christmas Day Ice

A week after over a foot and a half of snow fell in the High Country, around a half inch of ice has caused thousands of power outages in the area.

Over 30 percent of households are without power. At the outages' peak, around 35,000 were in the dark.

Crews from Blue Ridge Electric and even other energy co-ops have been called to the High Country to try and restore power, but it could be tomorrow before power is restored to all customers.

We have electricity now but was out this morning.
Yesterday we got the fallen barn awning torn apart and burnt some of it.

Photo's from Christmas Eve at the inlaws (don't know why the photo's are scattered around from each side).
