Ice Storm

Last December 1st we were treated with 12 inches of snow. So what happens this December 1st? Ice storm!!

Here we have some Big Bluestem that buckled under the weight of the ice.

We lost power for a little while and every time we looked out the door we could hear branches crackling. Several large branches fell in our backyard but the willow tree still stands strong.

This morning, the birds were out in full force, attacking the feeders (which we recently loaded up for the coming storm). For some reason, Blue Jays seem to have a nose for peanuts.

This is Socks approving of the seed offering to the birds.
