Ice Storm: Icicles On Icicles

The slower freezing mist and drizzle that fell during the morning of 01/27 coated limbs and stems with a layer of ice.  The heavier freezing rain that fell during the PM ran off the stems and created icicles which changed direction as the limbs sagged more and more.  The icicles ended up looking like tusks.  (Photo taken:  Tuesday, January 27, 2009, 12:19:10 PM)

(Note: As time and a slow dialup connection allow, I will be editing and uploading ice storm photos to a Picasa online album and will eventually post most of them on this blog. If you want to check out the Picasa album from time to time, it is here.)
