Ice Storm






Springfield has had several ice storms over the past few years.  We had two bad ones last year, and already we had a significant one this past weekend.  Here are some images I took at Camp Cilca on the morning of Sunday the 9th.
All night and morning while we were at Camp Cilca the sounds of crashing limbs and branches filled the forest.  These are truly awesome sounds. We saw several large limbs crash down just a few dozen meters from where we were standing, and even limbs crashing to the forest floor in the distance made a loud sound like thunder.
No one lingered under trees!

Your boys are getting to be so grown up Eric! Omigosh =) and you're a fun dad or so it seems.

Thanks for the kind words, Pam. It's always nice to hear from you, and I enjoy now and then looking over your two blogs to see what you are up to.
