The inconvenient ice. / by Ashley Brown

For all of you that are local, you certainly know what I'm talking about. For those of you who aren't... the Albany area got hit with quite an ice storm early Friday morning that pretty much paralyzed everyone. We were one of the lucky ones in that our power was only out for about 24 hours... many people still don't have any. I hope that all of my clients are keeping safe and warm!!

The storm fell at probably... err, definitely... the worst time of year for me... literally the day of my holiday deadline. Not having power puts a kink in that, so today I'm scrambling to get stuff done!

Of course, even though ice is a pain in the butt, it is so beautiful. I ran out on Friday to snap some photos, dodging falling limbs. I wish I had some more opportunity to document it, but boy, it was a war zone out there!
