Our willow bushes are covered in ice and bent right over. Friends who lived in this area during the ice storm tell us this is nothing compared to that period. We are glad we did not live here and experience the long period of blackout then.
On our way to church this morning, we saw a litter of branches surrounding many trees. Our neighbours birch tree has had its top snapped off. It was dead and decaying.
On our way home after the church service, we could hear the musical sounds of ice dropping to the ground off the trees. It was a magical sound in this Christamas period.
