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.
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.
What is the weather like where you live? Do you experience extremes like our ice storm? Let us know in the comment section below.
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.
