I is for Ice Storm
It's hard to imagine the effect of an ice storm unless you have had the pleasure of living through one. I have endured about four of them over the past 10 years. This was a little one that allowed me to walk around my small town and capture the solitude and sereneness that an inch coating will bring.
Everything is shut down. I-75 was closed and people where taken to shelters and waited it out. Electricity went out and everything came to a stand still. It was kind of cool!
Until afterwards when some areas were not up and running for close to a month. Could you imagine living without electric for a month? No radio, no coffee pot, no heat?
My parents went for a week! I, on the other hand, lived in a very new subdivision that had all its "connections" under ground! I was living large that week. That was storm # 2.
Anyway, I have lots of photo's but this one was taken in the graveyard and I would enhance it, but my Photoshop crashed with my hard drive and I can not find the disc, so what you see is what you get anymore!
I is for ice storm and may I never see another in my lifetime!
