Ice storm

Just in time for Christmas.... My family has made Iowa our home for eight years next month, but never before have we seen this kind of ice storm in which ice encases every twig, every blade of grass, every power line, every mailbox.

It rained liquid ice (literally) for nearly twelve hours straight on December 11th, followed by several snow storm systems since. Right now, we're hunkered down in our warm, cozy house catching up on games, blogs, and each other. :o)
