Cold As Ice

Last Thursday night we had a pretty massive ice storm. The strange thing is, less than a mile away, it was all rain, while our house turned into a winter wonderland of tree breaking ice.

It was actually an awesome site, to see everything just covered in ice. These pictures were actually taken Saturday morning, more than 24 hours after the storm. It wasn't until this morning when temperatures rose and a little rainfall melted it all away, so for the past two days we've been hearing trees fall and ice hitting the house like bombs. Thankfully the one window in the line of fire was a type of plastic, otherwise it would have certainly crashed right through.

We lost power for awhile, and our neighborhood looked like a war zone. Trees were fallen everywhere, branches were down, it was pretty crazy. It was certainly one of the most memorable storms I can think of.

The following pictures I took with my phone Friday mid morning.

These trees are normally pointing straight up:

The trees were totally covered in ice:

This was taken awhile after the storm, and the ice was still more than inch thick:

It did look pretty neat, too bad it is so destructive:

I think your phone actually took better pictures. Or maybe it was because it had just happened.
I hate winter. When can we move?
