April Ice Storm 2013

Yep that is right. It is the middle of April and we have had an ice storm. We lost power for a bit last night but luckily came back on before it got to cold in the house. So what does one do in the Spring when there is ice everywhere— Take Pictures!!!!!!!!!

My hubby bought me a new Canon T4i and I have been using it every chance I get. These are just a few of the photos I took. The ice was so thick we could not open our car door, I still have yet to open my mailbox and the grass crumbles at your feet.

Fresh Green Grass now cover in 1/2 inch of ice

The poor buds on this trea are now little balls of ice

our fence gives a good idea of what is covering our cars and everything else
Our front tree
Our neighbors garage

Last night we had Hail mix with sleet- you can still see the tiny balls that fell during the odd storm system

    Beautiful photos! Thanks for sharing them.

    I guess the best thing about an ice storm in mid-April is that it will melt away quickly. I hope it didn’t do too much damage to the newly emerging plants and the local wildlife.

    We got the same stuff you did. I had trouble opening my car door and decided to stay home from work. A couple hours later, someone called me and asked me to pick them up so I warmed up the car. Took almost an hour and I could only get into the drivers door at first.
