Kentucky Ice Storm '09
Though it's nowhere nearly as crippling and catastrophic as the one that struck much of the state in February 2003, this recent ice storm is indeed a humdinger. 202,000 are without power tonight in Louisville. Trees and power lines are down all over the place, of course. I had to pour saucepans of boiling water on my car yesterday morning just to get the thick inches of solid ice off. The photos here show the view from my back porch.
