There are no words that really describe what it looks like here in Fayetteville… at least no words from someone who dislikes writing.
A huge ice storm hit last night and destroyed trees and power lines. We stood outside yesterday afternoon and listened to the trees break throughout the neighborhood… it was very surreal.
I got out today to shoot some photos for the AP and thought I’d post them to give an idea of what our area looks like… I’ve never seen anything like this.
The above photo is of a car driving down our street yesterday. The photo below is also from yesterday, of our neighbor’s house. This doesn’t compare to what it looks like today… the tree to the right no longer has any limbs.
The next photo was taken on Greg Street in Fayetteville. It looks pretty normal until you realize that one of the cars is driving on the wrong side of the mustand and mayo. The weight of the ice caused the trees to bend over both lanes of south bound traffic.
