Life Part Two

The adventures of Fay and Bob as they move beyond the 9 to 5 life

Ice and snow storm

We experienced our first ice storm this weekend.  Just as predicted it started sleeting at 4 p.m. on Friday and kept on all night and all day Saturday and Sat. night we got snow.   Fifteen miles from us up the mountain and across the border into NC it was much worse.  Most business and schools started shutting down at 3 on Friday. Everything is covered with about an inch of ice.  No newspaper the last two days.  We actually got an email saying the paper might be late and they expected the paper to be delivered if it could be done safely.   That was not the case.   We did get UPS shipment and mail on Saturday.  Our dish TV went out for awhile Sat. morning until Bob knocked some of the ice off the dish.

Today, Sunday, it is 40 and it is melting.  Since there are no salt trucks or sanding trucks or snow plows you just wait.  I think NC and TN mountains probably have another day or two before they thaw because it is colder 2000-6000 ft.   Now the danger for our area is with all the melt and water that it will freeze over the roads again tonight because it is supposed to get down into the 20’s.   About 10,000 people in Greenville lost power but we are just fine.  I think Bob is secretly a little disappointed he didn’t get to try out the backup generator we have.
