Did you guys have a lot of ice or wind or just snow? Our winter has been super mild up here except for a real old fashioned blizzard on Dec 23. Generally Blizzards here are snow and wind , can’t usually see very far or can’t see beyond hood of your car and can get quite cold with windchill. The wind can make a 6” snow into 4’ hard drifts or more and windchill can be negative very easy. We get ice but don’t very often get that black ice ( super slick, super smooth) that occurs more frequently as you go south. Here ice normally seems to be rough enough that with some common sense you can carry on. Our local coop has a majority of their lines underground and power outages here are not very common but do happen.
