April Ice Storm


    We've had an ice storm in the city where B and I live. It wasn't particularly destructive, though the ice on the power lines caused power outages in a few areas and some small tree branches came down. It started yesterday, and continued until at least 5am today (I had a bit of a late night). Everything was coated in about 1cm of ice.

    It's warmed up a bit today (sitting at around 3 degrees C), so the ice has started to melt and drop off of whatever it had previously been stuck to. Trees are surrounded in bits of broken ice. Underneath the power lines are inch-long U-shaped bits of ice in straight lines that had obviously fallen from above.

    It certainly is pretty.
