Ice Storm Beauty 2019

A few weeks ago we had a serious ice storm.  There is only one thing that I dread about winter and that's an ice storm.  Usually during an ice storm our electricity goes off for many days but thankfully that did not happen this year.  I also did not hear about any horrible accidents - everyone wisely stayed home.  Anyway, the beauty from this storm could not be ignored - below are the many pictures that I took during the ice storm of 2019.  ENJOY!

The picture below shows the berries from the "fire shrub" or "burning bush":

The final two pictures show the ice that built up on the inside of my windows (they are original windows from the 1960's - definitely time to replace these windows) (these pictures were taken in January during the deep freeze and not taken during the ice storm).
