Default Ice Storm

It's been an interesting few weeks here in East Tennessee - have been rather busy cleaning up park trails from results of flooding, several heavy wet snows, and freezing rain. Of course, nothing to compare with the major storms in the northeastern US, but significant for us in the "sunny south."

Here are a few images from the home park after a recent ice storm.

Fortunately, the ice was early enough in the year that all the buds were still dormant, so no damage expected to upcoming leaves or blooms.

And, although wildlife food (soft mast) was locked in ice for a short time, the thaw came quickly enough that no "critters" were severely affected.

Most interesting to see the patterns and textures of the ice - for example, here on some native grasses.

And on some man-made objects (PS - can you identify the second "iced object?")

It was a quick thaw, but left some interesting work for us. Hope you enjoyed these icy views, and that your winter remains a safe one!

Thanks in advance for any comments & critique!

I started picking out favorites (1,2,3,....) and decided that it is just a spectacular series.
