Weekly Photo Challenge: Forces of Nature

View from my back door -- ice storm, Winter 2014.

With temps reaching the high 80s in Knoxville today, it’s hard to believe that just a few short months away we were dealing with altogether different forces of nature.  At least two ice storms rolled through the area during our winter months, coating each leaf, branch, and tree with crystal clear ice.  What a difference a few months makes!

    So thankful for summer! Beautiful sight, tho, and not one we will forget quickly.

    • Fae, thanks for the reply. I’ve been without wi-fi for a while, so I’m just now responding. It was a pretty bad winter, even though I must admit I have some gorgeous pics of ice on branches!! We’re full swing into summer now though. Hope you are ready for the week and whatever Mother Nature sends your way.

    What a difference, and thank goodness for it!!! Great choice.

    • Thanks so much, Tina. I love ice storms in a weird sort of way — can’t help but poke my head out and take a closer look. They’re just so darned dangerous, and the power was out in many parts of Knoxville. So, mixed feelings here!
