Great storm of '02 freezes Damage Labs


— 7:16 PM on January 31, 2002

We were without power last night and part of the day today as the worst ice storm on record smacked us with full force last night. Green flashes lit up the sky throughout the evening and into the night, as trees bowed over into power lines and transformers blew. Then ZZzzt. No power. No heat. All we could do is sit around and listen to tree branches snapping all around us.

To give you some idea what it was like, Andy and I snapped a few pictures outside our respective houses today. Check them out:

We pretty much lost all the trees out back, and it's the same all over the city. Ugh. But it was definitely exciting.
