Ice Storm

There is weather and then there is WEATHER! I think ice storms are the worse, in the winter. This storm is just beginning I think they are expecting more ice this afternoon through the night. I am thankful that I do not need to go anywhere. Buster is not having a good time either, the ice hurts his paws and he falls down and the noises the trees make scares him.
Here are a few pictures snapped on our 15 minute walk this morning. We have already lost some branches and the trees are all touching the ground.
This is a picture of a cone flower pretty isn't it. Dennis had to come and walk us back to the back porch, that sad. Our yard slopes and I went uphill OK but got a little freaked out going down. I thought 6 months gone in one second!!

This is my favorite picture taken right outside our back door. I love the icicles hanging from the bell. Not a whole lot more to say, I just wanted to share early in case the electricity goes out. Stay warm everyone and maybe I'll come back today to write more.

These are some awesome photos! Thanks for posting them.

We had an ice storm a few years back and we got similar results. Its very interesting to see plant like and still life encased like that.

Isn't amazing how something so beautiful can be so bad at the same time!

Whoa, I think you guys got it much worse than us this time! We have snow, with some sleet at times through the night and even this morning...but nothing like that ice you have! I'll be hoping your electricity stays on and everyone stays warm!
