Ice and Snow


Here are some pictures of our ice and snow when the power was off last week. The orange dot in the trees is a repair man from the electric company working on the downed lines. I would hate to have a job like that, these poor guys worked tired, wet and cold to get the power back on.
A shot looking up at the granary roof with icicles.

Looking from the sunroom at the ice hanging off the roof.

Ice and snow covered the pines but we had no damage to limbs.

Beautiful pictures. Ice and snow make everything look so fantasy-like, but in reality it's usually a nightmare, until someone in orange comes and fixes the power.
