The “Ice Tree”

Over the weekend, Motor Man’s sister told me of a “photo op” near their Mom’s house.

We’re not sure how this came to be, but in the yard of one of Motor Mum’s neighbors, a tree was nearly covered in ice.

Perhaps a sprinkler was on at some point during our frigid temperatures last week?

I think Motor Man took this next picture from his side of the vehicle.

However it happened, it made for a beautiful sight.

  6. Seriously, you gotta wonder what’s up with that.. o_O It is beautiful!

  7. Wow! That is a phenomenal sight and a phenomenal photo op!

  8. There are tall trees on each side of it. When it warmed a little, they were probably dripping water and ice onto the “ice tree”, but were also somewhat shading it. So, ice was not melting on it and at the same time the ice and water dripping from the tall trees was probably forming more ice on the “ice tree”. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

  9. Wow, that’s really spectacular, isn’t it? Makes the neatest photo!!
