    Everything's pretty much back to normal. Still alot of limbs lying around. Ft. Massac's still closed because of all the trees that are down.

    6 days without power for me. Everything in Metropolis and Paducah was shutdown. People were driving to Marion for necessities. 10 miles north of Metropolis, just an average snowfall, no ice.

    2 years in a row for this. Last year only without power a couple of days, and I thought that was bad. Hope this isn't some permanent climate change that makes this an annual event. Not much fun.

    Still looking like a war zone down in your neck of the woods or are you guys about to get all of the limbs and brush up yet???? I went through there a week or two ago and could tell you guys got smacked around a lot harder than we did 30 miles north of you.
