Indiana has been slammed with an ice storm the last couple of days. Indiana State University even canceled classes yesterday and today, which saves me from attempting to drive on ice covered roads.
Last night was especially interesting. As the ice accumulated on tree branches, they were under extreme strain. My house is surrounded by large silver maples, which have a tendency towards losing branches anyway. We spent the night listening to large branches falling and crashing all around us. The poor dog was traumatized by all of the noise.
Our roof survived intact, but our neighbor's garage was not so lucky.
