I really didn't expect the amount of icing we are getting out of this storm. I estimate about a quarter of an inch coating of ice on the the bushes, trees and power lines. While it's bending the branches on some of the larger trees and really bending the ones on smaller trees I don't believe it's enough to snap them or the power lines. With the warmer temps we had the trees are not brittle enough or the in cased in ice long enough to really bring them down even with the wind speeds we are experiencing. I know there were some concerns from some posters on facebook about fears of losing power. But of course that is right here in Nixa so I am not sure what others are facing farther north and west of us.

The south side of Monett just outside of town is out of power at this time. Where i live the lights are flickering.

I don't think anyone expected the amount of snow and ice around the Springfield area. Almost all the mets on Friday night was saying a dusting of snow and maybe .10" ice for Springfield area. After 5-6" of snow on the west side and over 0.25" ice I would say this storm caught everyone off guard!
