Bringing Aiken Up To Date #1

First, The Ice Storm Disaster of 2014!  Pictures are said to be worth a thousand words so....

Needless to say, this was a total disaster.  There was over a half inch of ice encasing EVERYTHING.  Trees continued to come down for days after the storm from the sheer weight of the ice.  Powerlines and fallen branches blocked roadways and devastated the whole area.  Many streets were blocked and access to anything besides the Whiskey road  area was impossible.  I brought a chain saw with me to get into the barn that first day...

Power was out everywhere.  So we got creative with finding water:

After the ice storm there was an earthquake, yes, EARTHQUAKE!!!  Of the 4 point variety. 

The long and short of it was that we SURVIVED!  Power Outages, Ice Disaster, Earthquake, etc and whatnot, you can't keep good eventers down!
