A Vermont Ice Storm

The weekend before Christmas, part of Vermont was hit with an ice storm. We happened to be in the middle of it. It was 20 degrees and raining, which meant the water immediately froze on everything it touched. Over an inch of ice later, the damage was clearly seen and heard.

Hopefully all of Ty’s Christmas trees fared well.
