PNW Ice Storm - January 2012

Here is a sample of the ice-encapsulated trees and shrubs in our yard...well, in everyone's yard. This is what six inches of snow followed by a day of freezing rain and under 30 degree temps looks like.

Kelty took this one. Love the bright red berries peeking out.

This cherry blossom tree is not nearly as pretty on its side with the roots poking out of the snow. This made me really sad as I'm pretty sure this tree dates back to our first year here (1999-2000).

  1. What a week it has been. I can't remember some days there has been so much happen. The ice was gorgeous on the trees but it sure caused havoc. Hopefully, we are back to normal now.
