snap, crackle, pop

and I'm not talking about rice krispies. We had a terrible ice storm on Thursday, and we still haven't recovered. A lot of people were without electricity Fri. and into Sat. The trees are totally coated - this view is from our back window this afternoon - more than 48 hours after the storm. Everything is still coated in ice. The wind picked up last night so the trees are snapping constantly, and I was really worried about our Red Bud out front. It's leaning on the front corner of our house (directly over our bedroom), but it's holding steady so far.
