In 2013 there was an ice storm. First it began to rain. Which immediately froze. 5 days before Christmas. My mother lost power, were supposed to all go there. Last minute everyone came to my house and we ordered pizza. Lol.
More rain, more ice. Our poor birch tree couldn't take anymore. Weeping like a great feather plume.
It began to snow. :O
After snowing all night, we got sun! Glorious sun, but very cold. Christmas Eve. I didn't think the birch would come back, but it did. When it all melted it sprang right back up like nothing ever happened.
And then it snowed a lot.
And got really cold.....
