After the Ice Storm

We had an ice storm sweep through area this weekend, and while cold (oh, cold and windy!), it left behind such beauty in its wake. Look how God made the world into frozen beauty:

The trees were eerily lovely in their coats of ice.

This almost looks like it belongs on the cover of a book:

In the quiet post-storm hush, the backyard became transformed

It's all melting away now, but this winter gift was so pretty while it lasted.


  1. Beautiful! Looks like we both had ice this weekend, I blogged about it too! :)

  2. I'm jealous! I love the snow and ice storms. This year we've only had one, tiny, tiny snow! Thanks for sharing these pictures, it gives me hope to see some of this beauty here soon!

  3. Just beautiful - not something I have every seen, but it must have been amazing.
