Yesterday and into last night, my town was in the middle of a terrible ice storm. Power went out in several locations, thankfully not in my neighborhood. It flickers from time to time, but only last for about thirty seconds. Ice has covered most things, the streets, tree branches and leaves, there are even icicles hanging about. I am so grateful that they canceled classes for the day. When I was sitting in the living room, I heard a loud "boom" sounding from outside the kitchen window. I looked outside to find three big branches covering the grounded remains of our backyard fence. Many more "booms" followed my own and the streets in my neighborhood are covered with branches of varying sizes. It is nothing like the "Winter Wonderland" I had been expecting. What natural disasters have hindered your outlook on the various seasons?
