The Storm

I haven't said anything about the major ice storm that hit our area (the second one) New Year's weekend. There are still several people without power that I know of, and they are being told up it could still be two more weeks. I took these photos last Thursday, after the ice had melted in 40-50 degree weather for three days.


Some bushes coated with ice.




One of the many tree limbs in my front yard that cracked under the weight of the ice





A randon piece of ice that fell off a tree limb. (Remember this is after melting in 40-50 degree weather for three days.)



A tree split in three parts. It's kind of amazing


These links show a lot more because they were taken on a sunny day. They really give you a taste of how bad it was here.
