If you’ve felt like the world is upside down when it comes to this winter’s weather you’re not alone. Everyone is pretty much scratching their heads on this one. While the northern states are waiting around for a decent snowfall to indicate winter has truly arrived, the states further south are getting hit with unexpected ice and snow, something most are not prepared for by any means. Last week’s ice storm in Clark County is an example of that.
More than 1,500 customers were without power last week according to Clark Energy Chief Executive Officer Paul Embs. Ice and downed lines continued to pose problems for Clark Energy days after the storm. Most of Clark County has had their power restored after ice covered power lines fell last week but not before they brought in additional work crews from Glascow and Cincinnati to help out.
The Clark County Road crews were out cleaning up tree limbs that fell under the weight of the ice. Flooding presented a problem on many county roads, especially Four Mile Road which was covered in standing water. Flooding is expected to continue as the ice from the storm melts but don’t be surprised if more is on the way. As temperatures remain in the single digits it’s anybody’s guess what’s coming down the pike.
At Murphy Realty Group we believe in working with what nature gives us and while it’s sure not safe to be out walking around on the ice, when it turns to snow it’s a great opportunity to get outdoors and have some winter fun! Whether you find a hill to sled on, enjoy the time making snowmen or have a good old fashioned snowball fight, these are things that make winter go by faster.
