Ice Armageddon of 2016

19 12 2016

Day 5 of the latest ice event and possibly the hardest hitting one in 50 years.  6,000 are estimated to still be without power- down from the original 20,000 from Wednesday evening.  Temps are starting to rise and actual liquid rain is falling, but the cleanup could take months.  In times like this it’s great to live in a community where people come together and help where needed.  Special thanks go out to all the Utility, City, County, and Emergency workers putting in extra effort to help.  Also thanks to the private tree companies and individual citizens that have helped so many along the way.

The Red Cross Shelter at Spencer Butte Middle School is currently still open and is available for a warm place to stay, showers, and food.  Also, other needs can be obtained (firewood, food, water, info) through the City of Eugene Shelter Information line at 541-682-5900.  The shelter will remain open until Tuesday at noon, or as long as there is a need.

The River House is ,so far lucky, escaping with little damage to the garden fence.
