This past Tuesday we had a day of drizzle and freezing temperatures.   A "historic" winter storm was predicted for our area  - 0.5-1" of ice followed by snow and 50mph wind gusts.   We have a TON of trees on our property and a storm like this could be devastating.    The rain finally stopped that afternoon and I was able to get a few pictures of the ice. 

This is our grill - you can see that the ice sickles formed over time

The bottom of the swing

We didn't end up with the gusty winds and our trees are safe :)  These pictures were taken this morning -the trees just glistened in the sun, it was beautiful!

Our power returned yesterday afternoon and today the ice is starting to melt/fall off the trees.   I'm ready for SPRING!!


  1. Oh my gosh. These pictures are awesome! Love them!

  2. Beautiful photos, Mariah. You must have your power back now! So glad everything turned out well!
