Ice Storm


We had an ice storm blow through a couple of weeks ago.  It was nothing like the North American Ice Storm of 1998, but it was enough to coat everything in a slick layer of ice.












Thankfully, the damage was minimal, a few broken branches, and no loss of power.  Seeing our world looking as though it was made of glass was a beautiful sight :)

  1. Ice storms can be very pretty but also scarey. Years ago we had one in Texas of all places and as the trees bent they broke and it sounded like a gun being shot off. Your photos are lovely.

  5. The closeup of the ice coating is interesting. We've had such mild winters these last few years I hardly know what snow is like unless i head up to the high country. - Margy

  11. Such pretty photos! I have wished for snow this winter but we didnt get any. I just want my son to experience it as I know he would enjoy playing on ice.

    Your photos are so lovely! Whites and blues are always calming and serene to look at.

  15. We have had the odd ice storm like that in Normandy but very rarely. They are so beautiful but also so potentially damaging and I am glad you didn't lose your power with this one. #pocolo

  18. Stunning pictures, glad there's not much damage but given how pretty it all looks you might be tempted to forgive that. thanks for linking up to #pocolo and sorry it's taken me so long to get to you :)
