W is for Ice

Today's post is brought to yo by the letter W and the category of photos.

 Winter Weather

 We had an ice storm two years ago.  It wreaked havoc on all the trees in the area.  We were without power for close to a week and had to host Christmas dinner for the family while running off of a generator.   Here are some pics of my back yard.


  1. Wow, the ice is so heavy, it bent the trees completely. Sorry you lost power during that time, but I bet it's a Christmas you will never forget.

  2. At least you had that generator. I don't know what I'd do without power for a week. I'm just glad winter is in passing - good riddance snow and ice storms!

  3. Ohhhhh, I thank goodness that that part of our weather is over for about seven months.
    We lost power for a week when Hurricane Sandy hit. Because of that, I bought a generator. Haven't used it. And I hope I never HAVE to use it.

  4. Those photos stir the deep dark recesses of my mind - I've got the scenario all set… sorry, but you get wiped out in the process - no can help you! hahaha Blame it on my inner demons.

    Man… that must have been amazing to see in person. Not that I really want to, I'll take your word for it that the storm wreaked havoc, but I must say Mother Nature does paint a stunning picture.

  5. Oh my gosh! Good idea to have a generator!! I can't imagine being without power for that long!


  6. I always thought ice on trees looked so pretty, but it can cause a lot of problems. We lose power most winters and could use a generator. I think that goes on the list. We just sit around and look at each other and when the sun goes down we go to bed. Maybe a game of shadow puppets first.

  7. I can't even imagine being out of power for an entire week. We lose power for an hour around here, and we're panicked.

  8. Just think of the stories you now have. Not fun while it was happening, though.

  9. Don't you just find it fascinating how the trees can bend like that! Really cool pictures! Not sure where you live at but here in SC we had a similar ice storm two years ago too!
