Icy Branches


I took these pictures last week after an ice storm. There's another such storm heading for states south of here, and it's supposed to bring snow to Virginia tomorrow night.

Luckily the ice we saw last week melted the same day. I don't mind a little ice and snow as long as it doesn't stick around.

  6. Nicely unusual.

    Can you do us a favour though and stop sending those storms over the Atlantic, we're getting very wet in the UK.

  7. Truly lovely. Once it rained and froze like that here and EVERYTHING was coated....like a fairyland, but I could hardly walk the dog. She didn't like it either.
