View From Purcell, Oklahoma: Ice Storm December 2013 Part 2

Ice Storm December 2013 Part 2

Ice Storm December 2013 Part 2

I had some damage from the storm. Three larger branches and one small cedar branch. At least that is what I have seen so far.

As I walked around my house Saturday checking for damage I could hear "Snap, crash, crash, crash" as large branches broke and fell to the ground.

There is 70+ acres 400 yards away and it is heavily treed and in a fairly untouched state. I am sure that was the majority of the falling branches. There is plenty to keep the tree trimmers busy in the coming months.


 

 

 

 

The first two bushes  (Crepe Myrtle and a Nandina) on the south side were virtually untouched by the ice.

 

 

 

My biggest tree damage was this 8" branch that snapped at the trunk and took the lower 4" branch with it.

That is a lot of ice to deal with.  It will cause a lot of tree damage for sure

The ice is pretty to see but it is so damaging. I remember an ice storm years ago where th trees behind our house sounded like guns going off.

Thanks, Than, for sharing your photographs. We are fortunate that we have not yet had any serious ice storms in Maryland this season. We also have a lot of trees and those bending and broken limbs pull down power lines.

Be careful if you must be out and about.

Best wishes for a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Hello Than,

Oh the photos are lovely - but the ice is destructive.  We went though this a couple of weeks ago. 

I hope that you and yours are enjoying a lovely Holiday Season despite the severe weather!

What great pictures, thank you for sharing. I am sorry for the loss of the trees and yet fascinated by the power of nature.  So many stories this year related to our environment and I know many of our friends in Maine are still without power.  Wishing all of you the best.

Than, Those photos are amazing ... especially to this city girl who rarely sees snow let alone ice formed on tree/branches.  Thankfully the damage was minimal and the trees will survive.

Wow!  You have had some wild weather.  We keep watching the extremes on the news every night and are thankful we have had it pretty darn easy this year ....... so far!
