Ice Storm Photos

A few days ago our island was hit by an ice storm. It pretty well closed down everything for the day and coated everything with a thick layer of ice. We were fortunate, but many people were without electricity for a couple days. Many tree limbs came down, including quite a few from the old maple tree in front of my shop. I took some photos which I'll share here.

  1. So glad you didn't loose power! It's flooded quite a bit here in Houston the last two years, but that ice can be dangerous.

  2. Wow! I knew that the Nor-easter that we had last week went north as a snow and ice storm, but I didn't realize that it was as bad as that for you. That's a LOT of ice!

  4. Oh my, that's super cold! On the contrary, we're having such a nice weather around here. Crossing my fingers for it to stays like this until Spring.
