Ice Storm Dec. 2013 Pictures

This is what our road looked like at the time of the ice storm. No traffic at all due to the ban on all travel except for emergencies. Below are pictures I took during the ice storm.

Iced Grape Vines

After 5 days of temperatures above freezing, the  thick coat of ice has finally melted from the roofs.  All of the bent over trees popped back upright as soon as the ice fell over their branches.

  1. Cool photos. It's just amazing how ice (or hoar frost...my favorite!) change the look of our surroundings.

  3. Absolutely beautiful photos - the pop of those berries! I am so jealous - I could live in ice cold weather 24/7 x 365!

  4. Mary, such stunning photos! I'm glad you captured these icy days with your camera because you caught everyday beauty that may have been missed - such as the hay rake and the berries. We've had quite a cold front here in VA as well, but nothing quite like this!!
