The ice storm


Yet another storm swept through yesterday, leaving beauty and destruction. Many are still without power.

The power of an ice storm... so destructive and yet so beautiful.

It's so, so beautiful. Your last several shots have just been wonderful, even though you must have frozen your fingers taking them (except the one of the pup, of course).

The trees are particularly vulnerable to ice storms. It's so sad to see them so broken. And how frustrating for those without power.

Snow storms are not so nice.
Good luck we don't have such for a long time.
Your photos are beautiful.

Why does havoc mean beauty?

Lots of people without electricity in the West of France too due to the third gale force storm in a week...

Muy bellas imágenes, en especial la primera.
La dureza de la nieve ofrece como compensación,
el atractivo maravilloso de paisajes irrepetibles.

Wonderful photos again. I like the white snow and all the forms.

Beautiful scenes. And we take flicking a switch for granted... even in power shortages it's still so easy to automatically go to turn on a light! Fingers crossed the power is restored very soon.

I even saw a spider's web coated in ice yesterday morning.

nothing here but rain and they are still moving around our weekend snow, or lack of...now they've moved it to friday/saturday which really messes with my boy's birthday party saturday, grrrr...anway, beautiful winter photos...hope the power is restored for those without, how miserable!

Never any fun being without power in the cold Winter. But you have some fine after the storm, winter photos here.

Ice is far worse than snow!

Sharon said...

I wondered if your area was hit too. I really feel bad for the people without power.

Those ice storms. Such tyrants.

Beauty amongst the destruction, keep warm.

I heard about all the loss of power, on the news last night. We did not get any ice, but we did get 23 inches of snow...

This seems to be the endless winter!

The first shot reminds me cherry blossoms in spring!:)

I just can't believe the worldwide weather we all are having. Everything is a bit wacky. Love your shots. (Thanks for the Moto G thumbs up. It isn't as good as an iPhone for pictures but it is a much more fun phone.)

We are still recovering here in Toronto from the big ice storm at Christmas!

Lady Lilith said...

I am sorry to hear about the power. I hope it goes back on soon. It is pretty cold out.

Randy said...

I love these shot. Keep warm.

Jack said...

The Mid-Atlantic region is really getting belted this year. Stay warm!

Kaya said...

Lulu, these are fantastic pictures! The trees have wonderful shapes and beautifully covered with snow. Breathtaking!!!!

jeannettestgermain said...

Oh what a hardship to be without power, because that means cold! Hope you have the power on?
Keep warm!

Savagely beautiful - really beautiful.

It's dreadful that something that looks so pretty and magical can cause so much damage Lulu.. one of mother nature's contradictions oui!

Beautiful but treacherous and deadly at the same time.
