Winter Blast 2006

After all the threats of a horrible ice storm, all Mother Nature was able to throw at us was 24-36 hours of freezing drizzle.  Bridges, overpasses and rural roads fell prey to the thin layer of ice, but urban roadways remained free of ice because they were too warm going into the event to support freezing.  The media hyped it, of course, as a “Winter Blast” or “Arctic Outbreak” or other similar nonsense.  To show the horrible devastation we suffered under the onslaught of the ice demon, I wanted to show you the crux of what I saw.  Careful; no natural disaster can compare.
