An Ice Storm, Then Snow and Sleet, More Snow, Then an Overnight Freeze

This is the view from the back porch out to the front gate. That's our driveway, somewhere.... On the far left the birds are feasting on seed we had to put on the ground since the feeders are frozen to the trees and can't be moved.

On the lower-right is a Burford Holly and the tree with ice laden branches is an elm that shades our front livingroom windows in the heat of the summer.

On the left is a large oak that is just ouside the back door. In the center is the grape arbor.

Inside the kitchen on the plant windowsill the daffodils from Touch of Nature keep us thinking of spring.
