Once in a Lifetime, Hopefully

The ice storm began Friday night December 20.
At first, the transformation was quite interesting . . .



. . . but, devastation quickly followed.





We were without electrical power for 5 days, but we survived.
However, the ice burdened trees suffered harm beyond repair.
The coming Spring will tell the tale.
Sad.

Yes very sad indeed ,I have a couple of trees in my yard that we planted about 35 years ago ,they have been through many a hurricane and none the worse for it, thank goodness . Their canopy is my shade in the heat of summer and I can see it's leaves cast dancing shadows on my wall as I write this .
I hope your trees survive. Blessings,Flora
