Aftermath of snow storm

While we were gone for Christmas, Lansing got a horrible ice storm that knocked out power to 40% of Board of Water and Light’s customers, some for up to 11 days in cold temperatures. Somehow our house was spared, while people who live across the street were not.

These pictures were taken 4 or more weeks weeks after this storm. Yards still look like they have brambles growing next to the street due to the huge piles of brush that have yet to be picked up.
