Ice Storm 2018

Texas

When we moved to this part of Texas two years ago, I thought I was finished with extreme winter weather.  Our first winter was very mild; but this winter has been a surprise.  We’ve had snow – just a dusting; but snow. And we’ve had icy roads several times.  However, nothing prepared me for a North Texas ice storm.

Ice Storm

Many tree branches were broken and some trees just toppled over from the weight of the ice.  It was sad to see the damage to the giant, old trees.  I took many photos of those poor trees.  I will share those in another post.

Beauty During the Storm

The ice was beautiful in many ways.  It covered trees and their branches — down to the smallest limb.  Ice coated the grass and weeds in the fields.  It even attached to fences, barbed wire and utility lines.

Here’s a slide show of a few of the photos I took.

Special Thanks

I want to add a special thanks to all the electric and utility workers that worked out in the terrible storm; so that we could be warm and safe.  Also, a heartfelt thanks to all the first responders who are always there regardless of the weather.

    • Luckily, our electricity didn’t go out. Many of our neighbors were out for a long time. This wasn’t my first ice storm; but it was my first in an area with lots of trees.
      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. 🙂

  1. I am so glad you gave credit to the hard working people of the utility companies. During power outages we often complain and forget that these workers are doing overtime to bring our lives back to normal. Great photos of the ice covered tress and branches!

    • Thanks. My hubby was an electric lineman for many years; so I know firsthand what they go through. Thanks for you comment and stopping by.
