The December Ice Storm of 2008 here in the Northeast was the worst ice storm in a decade for the New England area. Most damages came from downed trees, branches, and some telephone poles.
Power to millions of people had gone out and lasted for a week or more in some areas and crippled the area transportation and businesses for days while crews and the National Guard cleaned up.
Here in my area, my parents were without power and me one town over still had it. Since I had the power and it was pretty cold I opened my home up as a family refuge center to my sisters, parents, and grandparents for a couple nights. Fun!
The photos below were taken in my driveway and town.
