We had more ice storms this winter than snow storms. When the weather was very cold, it seemed too cold to snow. I guess it was really too dry to snow very much. The ice can be pretty to look at, especially in the following days when the sun comes out and makes everything look sparkley.
What amazes me is how the ice seems to get to every little place and coat every twig and stem.
