I must confess. I really enjoy a good ice storm. So long as it doesn't bring down the power for too long (and sorry, I can only imagine what the utility people go through during and after one).

It's interesting the difference just a degree can make. Right on the borderline. Just a little warmer, and this would be just one more rain storm. Just a little colder and it would have been our biggest snow storm of the season. But instead, the ice just kept collecting and collecting.

Look at the small size of that branch, and yet the thickness of the ice. It took a good many days, lots of sun, and high winds before the trees had shed their icy garments. And talk about beautiful. Wow.
