These pictures, taken this morning, Wednesday, January 28, show the results of a winter storm that has tied up Cincinnati and southern Ohio traffic and business/schools for two days. The storm began Monday evening and is not over yet. Last night things turned to sleet and freezing rain. One possible casualty is our little tree out back that is presently hanging down over Fr. Al's car. (We're not sure if it is just sagging or if it is broken. None of us have wandered out yet this morning to investigate. Maybe after breakfast we'll find out.)
While there is a certain beauty to the snow and ice, the danger is broken tree limbs and downed power lines. Both have been reported throughout the area this morning. (If you click on any of these pictures and then enlarge the blow-ups you can see the accumulated ice on the trees and wires.)
Plans have changed, work has been interrupted, and kids are out sledding and having fun--ice and snow bless the Lord.
