Disaster area

"OOOOOOOOOOOO--klahoma where the ice comes sweeping down the plain. Where the frozen trees break in the breeze and the wind knocks 'em over in the lane." Sorry about shoplifting your lyrics Mr. Hammerstein, but I think these new lyrics ring true. Holy moly, Batman. Where am I? My beautiful city looks like a war zone. I heard someone say that a 100-pound tree limb with 1/2" of ice on it weighs 1000 pounds. No wonder trees line the streets like litter in a Brooklyn alley. My city is broken. How many days until we fix it?
