ice world


After the twelve inches came a couple of inches of that not-so-fun substance known as freezing rain. Every school in the area has been closed for three days; the roads were skating rinks; the ice on top of the snow was thick enough to hold my weight. And every few hours the power would flicker. Sometimes it didn't come back on.
But still… I can’t be too disgusted. It’s beautiful.

I risked a severe concussion to get these next photos… the temperature finally rose above freezing, the sun came out, and the ice was falling in gigantic chunks off the tree branches.
