Still snowed in, Nashville?

Antonio & Delsy Lawn Care can help

All those beautiful limbs can cause a lot of damage falling on houses and cars.

All those beautiful limbs can cause a lot of damage falling on houses and cars.

The Nashville area was transformed into a winter wonderland this week, but it wasn’t exactly Disney’s “Frozen.” Although the ice-covered branches were beautiful, many of them cracked and fell. Sidewalks became skating rinks, and roads were impassable. In some neighborhoods, they still are.

While we’re all shivering in this arctic air, keep in mind you don’t have to go it alone when it comes to shoveling your sidewalk, cleaning away all those broken limbs or even removing branches you think might still be a hazard. The team at Antonio & Delsy Lawn Care does great winter work and can handle all your odd jobs and repair problems.

We’ve even got a solid 4-wheel drive pick-up truck that can make its way through anything Mother Nature throws at us this winter! And she’s definitely packing it in late in the game. WKRN reported this week that 46 kids ended up in the emergency room during the first two days of the ice storm due to sledding accidents. Tragically, two people were killed in a traffic accident. Businesses shut down, buses were on snow routes and many people lost power. If you haven’t slipped and fallen yourself, you probably know someone who has. 

A layer of snow on top of ice seems safer but is actually still very slippery.

With another round of snow predicted for tomorrow as of this writing, the mayor’s office warned Nashville residents to brace for the weather and offered tips on keeping warm safely:

  •  Keep anything that could catch fire at least 3 feet away from any heat source
  • Never use an oven to heat a home
  •  Turn off space heaters when leaving a room or going to bed
  • Have your chimneys cleaned and inspected yearly
  • Burn only dry, seasoned wood in fireplaces and wood stoves; Never use flammable liquid to start a fire
  • Make sure you have working smoke alarms; test them out every month
  • Have warm blankets and flashlights ready in the event of a power outage
