12 Apr april showers bring … april snow?
So really, what’s Spring without a little bit of an ice storm? A whole lot of ice storm, actually.
Our entire town was shut down as a result of this storm. Power outages were frequent, with some outlying areas without power for a couple of days. A lot of towns in Southern Ontario faired about the same. Trees and hydro lines down everywhere. I finally ventured out in the middle of the afternoon to take these photos, and simply stepping foot out the door was beyond treacherous. I figured that the yard would offer better traction and it was so crazy to hear the grass breaking and crunching under my boots – it was like a clear lake of ice. I’m hoping nobody saw my two foot shuffle across the driveway.
And yes, I think I need a new birdfeeder :)
