Incredibly pretty shots - we hardly ever get ice storms. The only one I can remember having in the 10 years we've lived up here made the roads ice skating rinks and we barely made it home. But not much for photo opportunities, I think it warmed up enough that the roads were OK the next day and we went to work.

We've been having a relatively mild winter over-all. We had some snow very early but then it warmed up. They are talking about rain, even at fairly high elevations, for this weekend and next week. I'm sure that will change in a month and we'll see more snow. I wouldn't mind a minor ice storm as long as it happens on a Friday night as long as the power stays on and so I can enjoy taking pictures without having to go anywhere the next day.

Super beautiful wrapping, we don't have any weather that gives these results.

Great series Mole

What's the matter Mole, you gonna let a little ice stop you from riding your bike?

You know, its interesting. Here in Florida, when we get freezing weather the strawberry farmers turn on the sprinklers to put a coating of ice on the plants to protect them from the cold! I know it sounds strange but, its the truth.

You captured some really beautiful photos there, Mole!

Oh, mole. Reminders of the past few winters for us. As a matter of fact, we are having a generator installed on Monday. Hopefully we will never need it, but after 2 times of being without power for between 6 - 8 days in the past 2 years we aren't going to wait this time. When it's 10-20 degrees outside, it isn't much warmer in the house. We had lived here for 20 years before without any long power outages.

Anyway, your images are beautiful. I really like the dogwood buds.

Bluenose - Indeed a combination of beauty & danger. Have been quite busy lately repairing some of the damage done to trees, etc. Glad you enjoyed these!

Penolta - Thanks! Fortunately we did enjoy a brief thaw before the cold & snow returned, so birds were able to reach their "frozen snacks" again.

MtnMan - Ice storms are rather rare here, but more common down in Vole's area (SE TN). Indeed quite destructive...

Harriet - glad you enjoyed these, and that your weather has been better!

Ronny - Ice wrapping sure is pretty, glad you don't have to deal with it!

GW - Had to walk to work that day, but bike is back in full operation now!!
Maybe the ice coating helps to keep berries from getting below 32 degrees?

Patty - Sorry to have brought back some unpleasant memories for you, but glad you are getting the generator!
