Beauty in the Storm-leaving beauty amongst the destruction.
Hey Friends! I am so glad that you are here. As with so many of you, we were hit with an historic winter storm this past weekend. What made our storm so interesting is that it dumped more that two inches of ice and layers of snow in between more layers of ice. Thus creating tough driving conditions, as well as causing a tremendous amount of damage in our area. In late September, our community had terrible wild fires that also caused a tremendous amount of damage, and many families lost their homes, barns and all of their belongings. So, I am going to show you some of the beauty of the ice storm and not dwell on the damge from the storm.
The ice covered pine cones were just too pretty not to capture.
The ice covered branches were so beautiful!
There was so much ice on our trees, that the limbs were actually laying on the ground. We spent a couple of hours shaking the limbs with all our might trying to get off as much ice as we could before the branches broke.
I hope that your storms have passed and that you are warm and safe. I hope that you enjoyed seeing the beauty of the ice.
Hugs and blessings to you,
