Like most folks I know, we weren’t really prepared for the magnitude of damage left in the wake of this week’s ice storm.
We were warned. We saw it coming. But none were prepared for the walloping blow that landed on the Augusta area.
I recalled the last ice storm we had about a decade ago that left us shivering without power for a few days. I figured the roads would be icy, some tree limbs would fall and the power grid would go dark, but I admit that what happened caught me flat-footed.
