After the Storm

Hello everyone, many parts of our area are still cleaning up damage from our Easter ice storm.  I thought I would share some quick shots taken the following day....

As the sun came out and temperatures started to warm the ice looked like diamonds.

Even with climbing temperatures it still took almost 3 days for the ice to melt.

We were fortunate to not have more damage close to the house.  The falling ice sounded like shattering glass.

We lost several large trees along the edges of our forest.  Many trees toppled over with their roots being pulled from the ground.

This big old apple tree snapped under the weight of the ice.  Surprisingly the very old hollow apple tree nearby is still standing!

This past weekend we had another storm but this time it was all snow.  We received about 20 cm and with the very cold temperatures it wont be melting for a few days.  The good news is that the sun is getting warmer every day.

The little stream is flowing briskly which must mean that spring cant be that far away!

~Thank you for visiting~
