Cameron: We have a great interview for you, but first we'd like to show you some highlights of our Wednesday night ice storm. And though many of you have undoubtedly had worse this winter, this is not "normal" for us.
Merci: We did have some snow flurries Thursday morning, but any white you see on the ground or floating through the air is strictly I-C-E! Brrrr.
Cyndi: This was taken before midnight. See the blue light? That's a police car parked up the street. We'll get back to this later.
Merci: On our walk, we came across two men using a chain saw to cut up a huge section of a tree.
"Firewood?" Jan asked.
"Yes, ma'am," one guy replied. It's like this all over town. You ought to see the other side of these woods!"
Well, Jan could imagine. She stood outside before 1 a.m. in a dark world with no traffic to hide the sound of repetitive "gunshots" and crashes in the woods and neighborhood.
Cameron: Everything was shut down and trucks couldn't get out of Atlanta so we just had our first mail delivery since Tuesday.
Buddy: And the strange thing is that after the terrible weather this week, the ice melted quickly yesterday and except for the mud and small patches of ice here and there, no one would guess we've spent a few days in "iceland."
Sam: Well, that was our excitement for the year, we hope. Jan was kind of lost without electricity. Everything she could think to do - vacuum, computer, coffee, laundry - required power. There wasn't enough light to read indoors. We were all relieved when the power came back on and hope everyone else in the path of the storm has power too.
