Winter in the South is as likely to bring ice as it is snow. Ice-weighted trees present any number of dangers, but their beauty in the sunlight is extraordinary.

  1. Yep, I totally agree. The first time I ever saw an ice storm, I was flabbergasted by the sight. Such an exquisite beauty, yet so deadly. The cracking and falling of trees and limbs was terrifying, yet all the while it was so incredibly beautiful. They are rare here in Oregon, thankfully! But what a sight!

    1. The sounds are intriguing. When the icing first happens and the wind blows, there’s that creaking sound which makes you feel like something is about to happen. As the sun warms the ice, there’s that lovely tinkling sound like glass chimes.
