Ice Storm

Yesterday we had the worst ice storm there's been since 1998.   Freezing rain fell overnight, and this morning everything had an incredibly thick layer of ice!  Though I'm aware there's quite a few people that are suffering the consequences with no electricity or even with unfortunate accidents, I will admit that, being the first time in my life I experience something like this, it was fascinating and, frankly, even fun! (with all due respect for those adversely affected by it, I insist).  In fact, we spent some 4 hours out in the cold braving slippery streets and freezing wind in awe at nature's crazy turn.   Now I know what some fairy tales refer to when they talk about "forests of ice"...
