We got about 4 " of snow the night before last, yesterday the temp rose to around 32, rained and it froze on contact. Temp dropped to the teens last night, and left us with a winter wonderland.

Another. We're lucky- many people lost trees or major branches. The really unfortunate ones lost power. Last night it was 120,000 customers, now it's down to about 50,000. The temp is in the teens and low tonight will be 4. I want spring.

Wow--the ice on the tree is gorgeous. But how awful for people to be without power in those temps!

I had to shovel 8" of snow--or deeper--to clean up the Indiana part of the storm. It snowed so much, the city actually plowed my street! :)

Hey, I thought I replied to this yesterday! I don't see my response.
Anyway, I hope you are all doing well there, Karen. Ice can be so destructive. But it's so pretty though, especially when the sun shines. It's an unreal sight (That tree is fabulous)!
Thanks for sharing pictures and stay warm and safe :-)

Linda: What we have is nothing compared to your 11 ft of snow! How are things for you now? Did you get much of this storm? I just know it was moving toward New England today.

The sun is a little more plentiful today so the trees look even more spectacular. Pictures really don't do them justice. It's not melting at all. Currently 18 degrees (High for today) and lows are around 0. The phone company finally came today and repaired our lines that have been on the ground for 2 days. Electricity is being restored, about 20,000 homes left without power now. My friend at work had 44 degrees in her house yesterday, can't imagine how cold it would be by now.

I hope you New Yorkers didn't get much of this storm. Hang in there- spring CAN'T be too far off now, despite how it feels out there.

BTW, I love your rabid raccoon pics- I think she looks like a snowy teddy bear.

Beautiful pics, Karen!

I love taking pics after an ice storm....I have always referred to it as "eerily beautiful".
