Shutterbug Saturday: Ice Storm 2015

Posted on Updated on

Continuing from yesterday’s post, this was an ice storm that occurred when I was in Examiner School. This area is in the Eastern part of the state, a half an hour due East of Fayettenam (Fayetteville/Fort Bragg) and 75 miles NNW of Wilmington. Basically, it’s in the middle of nowhere. It was all I could do to not bust my ass walking to class.

These and yesterday’s pix were taken with my old Samsung Alias II. ~Vic

    That was pretty, pretty and rather damaging.

      Oh, we had a hell of a time. Lost power. Heat went out. I got stuck in the shower when the lights went out. Computer systems went down. Tree limbs all over the place. Food service shut down (which was no problem with me…cheap, nasty food…I brought munchies). Stuck cars. Still had to go to class…🙄

      The one thing we didn’t lose was water, which surprised me.

        That is surprising. And still having class is surprising

          NC State government…we didn’t have to drive. The Instructors were on site. Power was only off for about 3 hours. Then, instead of waiting for Duke Energy, they kicked on some generators. This place is THE hub for LE training despite being in no-man’s land. The surrounding areas were out of power for two days before Duke Energy could restore it.
