February ice storm

The storm hit Feb. 24 and 25. We heard a loud crack Sunday morning and saw this 50 ft. section of a large ash tree down in our neighbor's yard and into our driveway. There was some minor damage to gutters, we feared that the rest of the tree would come down on power lines. Monday the tree service took down the rest of the tree and power was restored by crews from Kansas.
