Last night, Oklahoma was hit with its biggest ice storm since 2007. The storm provided a perfect photographing opportunity such as this bud from one of our crape myrtles (lagerstroemia).
Another ice covered crape myrtle bud.
More ice covered buds.
A crape myrtle branch...more ice than branch.
An ice covered branch that should be pointing up at about the same angle it is bent down.
Our holly bush with a vastly different ice accumulation than after our ice storm in 2009.
I was in Beaver, Oklahoma, all day yesterday and drove back in the thick of the ice storm late last night. It was pretty white knuckle, blasting the heat to keep the windshield from freezing, reaching out the window to grab the wiper so it would crash back into the windshield knocking off accumulated ice. But the worst part...Oklahoma drivers...more dangerous than any road condition. This was the ice that accumulated on my radio antenna. The rest of the car was even worse.
Not quite as much ice on the mailbox as in 2007.
Icicles hanging form our backyard pergola but, again, a little less than in 2007.
The icicles do make an interesting pattern.Posted by Don |
