Ice in Seattle

I guess Mother Nature doesn’t like to be mocked. No sooner had I posted “Snow in Seattle” making fun of our two inches of snow, than the real storm arrived with serious snow, followed by freezing rain, more snow and¬†finally wind. After four days without power we’ve emerged to a landscape of split trees, fallen branches and crushed plants. As the ice formed, you could stand outside and hear the rifle-shot of branches crashing to the ground and watch the plumes of falling ice and snow. It left a beautiful landscape in its wake.
