Friday's Fotos - Encased in Ice


Even devestating ice storms have their silver lining, in this case the almost surreal vistas left in their wake. Hood River and Parkdale, Oregon, have experienced freezing rain for two straight days... as the rain falls, it freezes almost instantly to whatever it lands on, encasing everything in thick, but pretty ice. The flip side is innumerable broken trees and powerlines all over the valley and the weather forecast shows no break in the fun.

Hi Gretchen and Mel, what amazing photos, ice can be so damaging to plants and homes as well.  Hope you will get through this winter weather episode without harm and let's hope the power stays on!

Hope this storm was not dangerous to your trees!    It did sound like you were getting a winter blast!    Could you send some to our mountains?   We are in desperate need of some snowfall!

Gretchen and Mel, your photos are just beautiful.  It's hard to tell whether they are in color or black and white!
