Ice, Ice, Baby! Ice Storm, 2009

I have no idea how these pictures loaded this way and I can't seem to fix them. So, here are some pictures of the ice accumulation. We ended up with over an inch of it, with about 2 inches of sleet and about an inch of snow. If you look close, you can see the trees bending under the weight. The picture of our fence shows the amount of ice the best.

When all is said and done, there is still beauty to be found in God's world. What a blessing to consider His power during the storm and witness His beauty afterward.

Plus, we even took time to play. This is Abigail and myself sledding. She also had fun pelting me with snowballs. The fun time pictures were taken the day after, when things began to warm up and melt. All day long we could hear the cracking and snapping of trees in the forest that surrounds us. Thankfully, we have no trees immediately near the house. Our church family in Arkansas fared much worse than we did. We plan to head that way tomorrow. Me, with the chainsaw and My wife and the girls to the church for disaster relief help. Say a prayer for all those affected.
