The ice storm started Thursday November 30, 2006 and continued through Friday December 1, 2006. One fourth of the county was left without power. Five warming centers opened around the county. The Journal-News reported that generators and chainsaws were hot sellers. Standing outside Thursday night I remember hearing constant popping noises of tree branches breaking along with bright flashes and explosions when power transformers shorted out.
