The ice was never that bad here, although I think about 400,000 homes in North and South Carolina were still without power this morning. The roads were never icy, and we never lost power.
You can kinda see the ice on the trees in the picture, and you can really see The Beast, Gerald's Blazer from the late 70's. I think it gets between 7 and 11 miles to the gallon. On the highway. There are visions of fixing it up and taking the top off and driving to the beach like a bunch of crazy college kids, but that will never happen. Whatever does happen to The Beast, I've requested that the American Flag license plate gets transferred to my car.
I've also requested an airbrushed license plate like you get at the fair that says "Gerald & Mandy Forever" but somehow everyone thinks I'm joking. I'm not joking, I think it would be the funniest thing ever. You actually see them in the South!
