Ice Storm of 2008

Here in New Hampshire we woke up to a major ice storm. Over 200,000 people are without power (including my home) and there are downed trees everywhere. While ice on trees look beautiful, it is so destructive! Temps at the moment are 34 degrees, which is just 2 degrees above freezing. So much water everywhere, if the temps drop again tonight tomorrow isn’t going to be pretty either.

Interstate 93 from Manchester north to Concord was clear though and I was able to get to work, going about 50mph with heavy rain falling. It looks like at least in the central part of the state that some of the main roads have been cleaned up, although the secondary roads have got to be a mess.

Stay safe everyone.
