I went down the Lake and took some pictures of the mess left behind by yesterday's snow and ice storm



Happy for some food


The stairs down to the boardwalk






This shows how thick the ice is

No, you don't. Really, you DON'T.

Eithne, those are fabulous pics - you guys got lots more freezing rain than we did, apparently!

It isn't that bad once you get away from the Lakefront, we just got crazy waves from the wind

Nice photos! I really like the lampost shot.
post #13 of 29
wow. Great

I'm glad we didn't get that much ice (over a foot of snow at this point )...ice storms are beautiful if you can just take (or see pics), it's the power outages, downed trees, slippery roads and sidewalks that I could do without!

We were quite lucky with the power, a few downed lines but nothing major

So that's what I have to look forward to when I come home?? My car has been sitting for almost a week now...looks like I might need an ice pick to get into it!!
post #22 of 29
Wow! Great shots, Eithne! I love the ice wrapped round the light.
We thankfully don't have much ice around here, just lots and lots of fresh cruchy snow to go skiing in (if I'm ever not too tired!). Finally the sun came out today and everything looks so beautiful.
It's fun to have a white Christmas.

That is just near the Lake, once you get about 10 minutes into the city it is all crunchy snow.

Most of the ice is due to the waves crashing off the walls at the Lake

These are not mine so I will just link to the page, but this was the wind / wave situation when it was safe enough to go down there
