So lately there's been A TON of commotion in my life, we've had major super bad ice storms in my area lately. Like really really bad...
All the trees had been coming down and one fell on the electric wires outside my house, shutting down the power for the whole street -_- nice right? so for me, no power, no heat and neither for my nana who lives next door.. so yea for like 4 or so days we had no power. so we set up a generator to at least make it not freezing cold in my house, but the generator died! and killed our furnace. so we ran off to my other grandmothers house who has power, and had been there for the past 5 days, couch camping, fun right? XD I know.
The trees were covered in ice and it was everywhere, a big branch fell of our 100 year old maple and went through my dads car window. brand new fucking car- shattered window.
We had big live wires in our driveway for the longest time till our stupid neighbor moved them for us and almost died. One night the live wires got wet cause ice started melting and they got wet because ice started melting and we had big power surges. the power poles at the end of our driveway exploded a few times and lit up the whole sky blue and green. it was so bright we couldn't even look at it. and the power surges caused a ton of our stuff to like blow up and get ruined so there's that...
So now total losses are: like 6 trees, car window, furnace, stove/oven, coffee maker, electric blanket.
And for my nana: 3 TVs, stove/oven, coffee maker, kettle, computer, speakers, microwave, toaster
Also, on Christmas eve at like 4am, there was a massive bang that woke us all up and shook the house.. thought it was Santa clause lol no. it was a frost quake, so kind of like an earth quake cause by the ice. The ground is frozen, and when it rains the water seeps into any cracks in the ground and then that water froze, and it expanded and puts too much pressure on the soil, eventually just releasing all the tension and built up energy like an earthquake so that was just lovely...
And the weather calls for more ice storms TOMORROW
Great.. just great -_-
Wish me luck guys lol and all those in the same position
