    Ice Storm

    So I'm home for X-mas (until the 10th) and there's an ice storm here in central Indiana. There is ice all over trees, power lines, grass, fences, and everything else. Not only that, but it rained for a couple days straight before this happened and there is water standing everywhere. Our front yard turned into a pond.

    The coolest thing is that the ice on the tree branches is making a lot of them fall down. The house across the street now has a yard full of tree branches. I'm in the country, so when I'm driving there are branches in almost every road. It's pretty cool...some kind of adventure. I even saw two power lines down. Stupid me, I left my camera in my room 2 hours away. The ice looks really cool on trees and fences.

    Power outages suck.

    Hopefully the sun will come out before the ice covered trees thaw. Watching a sunset through crystallized branches is rare, but beautiful.

    The ice on the trees does look cool. However, I have friends that live in southern Ohio and they 'had' a 100 yr old Sycamore tree in front of their house....the tree was massive and looked so beautiful after the leaves would turn each Fall.....but, after the ice storm that hit the Columbus area last week the tree is literally now just a 'trunk'...every single limb and branch broke off from the very tip of this tree to the bottom. It was sad to say the least......it was just a freak thing......Mother Nature at work....eh?...
