This is the small fir tree near our front porch. It sprang back after an icy rain last year, and hopefully it will again.
The power went out about an hour ago, and there’s no ETA on restoration. I went on a brief photo expedition and will have more pics to share, including an example of why the power lines don’t fare so well in this stuff.
The roads aren’t bad, though, so once we figure out how widespread the outage is we can go get some chow and check out some more of Mother Nature’s ice performances. If it looks like it will be a while for power, we can also take a run to pick up my father-in-law’s old generator.
I laugh in Icy Doom’s face!
