Behind the cut are photos of the ice storm and its results near Hazleton, Pennsylvania. Dial-up users be cautioned.
On the day of the storm itself it got quite foggy.
Many people, including my neighbor, ended up with damage from falling tree limbs.
On the next day ice still sheathed everything. The ground was carpeted and walking on it caused tremendous sounding crunches.
Everything was silent. There were no animals around. If the sun had been out everything would have been blindingly bright. Even so, everything shone.
The smallest strands of matter were encased.
On the next afternoon the sun finally started to make an appearance.
In my four years in Pennsylvania I've seen plenty of snow but not many ice storms. I hear about them from more southern and mid-western states. Forced to choose, I'd rather have the snow.
Sunset yesterday, and at the time more freezing rain was predicted.
