When we were driving up to KY on Sunday it started to snow a little. We figured no big deal. Monday it snowed more and got really cold, down into the teens. Tuesday we woke up to a few inches of snow. At this point it wasn't really too big of deal. Then Tuesday night a big winter storm came through the state bringing ice during the night and then snow Wednesday morning. The ice caused trees to break off large limbs and power lines to snap down. Over half of the state lost power. Luckily our hotel didn't, but Joe ended up not working because the people he was working with didn't have power at home. The picture above and the following are ones we took Wednesday and the rest of the week. We definitely got our fill of winter weather this year!
The worst part about the storm was all the ice, although it was beautiful to look at on all of the trees. The ice was about an inch thick. This tree had cherries on it.
Joe is down cleaning off our car. There was a few inches of snow and then underneath was a thick layer of ice.
