This brings back the memories we have of January 8, 1998. My daughter Rachel, who woke up on her 14th birthday to this and the flu actually just said to me..."I had so much fun during that storm!" We went to my "second favorite place to be" best friend Deb's farm and all gathered together. The next morning I was able to get out and buy a generator and since my husband was in Korea serving his country, my good friends and my husband's First Sergent came to lend a hand. The generator was hooked up and running for 15 days. It was a time of hardship, yet when you are faced with such a demand of strength it really brings it out in you. My thoughts go out to the people of the Ice Storm of 2008, but they will get though it with memories of unbelievable power, emotion, and the love of humanity.
Ten years later there are still the visual memories here in the wild trees with branches tipped toward the ground. The trees really took a hit and communities will re-plant to bring their neighborhoods back to life.
I can see the tears, and the laughter in the faces of the people brought together by this storm.
Endure, love your neighbor and you WILL come out the other side.
This video really says it all.
