Snapshot Saturday 2/8

Snapshot Saturday is hosted by West Metro Mommy Reads.

We had an ice storm this week that produced a lot of damage (broken tree branches for us, plus power out for about 12 hours)...but the ice-covered trees and bushes were beautiful in the morning!


All of the trees & bushes - including our Japanese Dwarf Maple - were coated with ice

Amazing how every little twig was covered with tiny icicles dripping off!

Even the evergreen needles were coated and sparkling.

This string from a spider's web was coated with tiny droplets of ice!


Every needle on the pine trees was covered

Some of the damage to our pine trees
Brrrr...we lost power for 12 hours but tried to stay warm!

Hope you are enjoying a lovely and relaxing weekend!

Ice storms can be so deadly...and beautiful, too. Thanks for sharing...and here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST

I know these ice storms can be quite dangerous, but, they do look so beautiful.
I particularly love the evergreen needles shot :-)

Brrr! I hate it when we lose the power! I hope your trees aren't too badly damaged by the ice! it weighs sooo much!

As Australia burns it's so hard to imagine your weather - it's probably just as hard for you to imagine ours…. A gorgeous selection of photos.
