We are getting a (supposedly) apocalypse of an ice storm this weekend. It reminds me of this storm several years ago, week before Christmas of 2013, which actually was pretty bad with lots of damage from the ice. Michigan has (very) nasty weather sometimes, but there is beauty in it always.
We had a little snow, then it started to rain and then got very cold quickly overnight. Amazing frozen raindrops on everything.
It rained some more over the next 2 days, locking all in a thick case of ice. (maybe 1/2 inch or more)
Then it snowed. Some. Slowly. All day really, a few inches.
Christmas morning-after a little more snow overnight and super cold. But sun! Magic! Everything was like crystal. Trees were drooping under the weight of the ice.
