As I was editing photos today, I realized that I really had too many to fit into one post, so this will be the 2nd of 3 posts featuring ice storm images from last week. The first post, Ice Storm Images 1, had photos from Wednesday and Thursday. Today's photos were all taken through the windows of our house on Friday.
It was snowing so hard about 4:00 on Friday afternoon, and I was very concerned that all the new snow on top of the ice was going to cause us to lose power again. The forecast was also calling for increased winds overnight.
Thankfully, it didn't continue to snow for very long. By 6:00 p.m., the sun was peeking in and out and the temp had climbed up to 40°.
The icy trees looked gorgeous against the backdrop of the blue sky!
The sun and 40° temp caused some of the ice to melt which took a bit of weight off the trees before the winds increased that night.
Can you believe that ice? Remember, click on any of these photos to see them larger.
It was difficult to pull ourselves away from the windows!
The real melting began the next morning. I have those photos and a cool video to share with you in the next post.
All is well in the Keweenaw.
