There it is. A tree where none should be.
To the right in this photo is a long set of stairs.
At the bottom of that set of stairs, is a tree that I planted four years ago. It's a tall tree, perhaps 15 feet high. That lovely tree was bent far over, a vivid demonstration of how heavy and destructive freezing rain can be.
I love that lil' tree and it saddens me that the weight of the ice is breaking its branches as the winds bang it against the side of the house. I tried to bang some of the ice off the branches but that only sped up the damage.

But it's pretty tough for the birds.
And downright lousy for the power companies !
