Lexington Neighborhoods Hit Hard By Storm

Many people in Lexington woke up Wednesday to find messes in their neighborhoods.

From downed trees and powered lines to slushy streets, it caused a big slow down as people left their homes.

In the Chevy Chase area, the ice caused 200-year-old trees to crack and fall. In some places, tree limbs were seen, laying on power lines.

Amazingly, most people in that area still have power.

The Eastland neighborhood didn't fare much better. The snow and ice made it tough to get around, as did tree limbs, laying across roads.

    I lived in Lexington during the ice storm a few years ago, and went without power for 8 days. At that time, I worked for KU, and vividly remember the thousands and thousands of calls into the call center, often being yelled at, and called many names that I will not mention here! I can really feel for everyone without power. But with so many hundreds of thousands of people without power, KU/LG&E are doing the best they can. They aren't magicians, just extremely hard working people who are willing to go out in all weather conditions to work until everyone is back on service. They have an extremely dangerous job, and really needs the public's patience through all of this. Remember, at the end of their shift, they are going home to cold houses without lights too! Just because they work for the electric company doesn't make them immune to power outages! I know it's cold, but please be patient with them, & let them do their job safely! Yelling and screaming will not get service on any faster

    I've heard from several people that they have power outages or no power. My grandmother along with two other neighbors are without power but the rest of the street does. We are hoping to find a generator for her soon but we have lots of snow and ice and it may look pretty but it can have bad consequences. Please be safe!

    all about essays Like the novel, the essay is a literary device for saying almost everything about almost anything. By tradition, almost by definition, the essay is a short piece, and it is therefore impossible to give all things full play within the limits of a single essay. But a collection of essays can cover almost as much ground, and cover it almost as thoroughly, as can a long novel. Montaigne's Third Book is the equivalent, very nearly, of a good slice of the Comédie Humaine. Essays belong to a literary species whose extreme variability can be studied most effectively within a three-poled frame of reference. There is the pole of the personal and the autobiographical; there is the pole of the objective, the factual, the concrete-particular; and there is the pole of the abstract-universal. Most essayists are at home and at their best in the neighborhood of only one of the essay's three poles, or at the most only in the neighborhood of two of them. my name is bill and live inashoe

    While one side of the street has power, the other side has been without since 7pm yesterday. No estimate on restoration of power - but we've been bumped out of the KU system at least once since the outage. Still waiting to see a KU truck in the neighborhood.
