I took yesterday off due to the freezing rain. This what our bushes looked like Tuesday after Phase 1 of this monster winter storm.
I decided to try to get into work this afternoon. I set out for work just before 10:00 and this is what my commute looked like.
It wasn't snowing much, but it was surely blowing what we had all around. This picture was taken at the southern edge Marion City.
A snowplow was ahead of me for several miles. I appreciated the clearing he provided. From time-to-time, he disappeared from view. We had very little snow, folks; most of this is ice.
About halfway to work the ice damage to the trees became more evident. Thousands of people in Delaware and Franklin Counties (Columbus is in Franklin County) have been without power since late yesterday.
You can see how the ice is built up on the power lines and the trees are leaning over the lines dangerously.
The ice and wind was just too much for this line. The State Highway Patrol had the road blocked for safety. I turned around after taking a few pictures.
Someone needs to tell Mother Nature that spring is right around the corner.
I will be linking to Outdoor Wednesdays.
