It started a couple of days before Christmas. The temperature rose to minus one and it started to rain, and rain, and rain. During the night, it froze. When this occurs, it’s usually followed by power failures. We were lucky that our street had to do without electricity for only one day. Others were without for a week, even when the temperature dropped to minus twenty.
Everything is trapped under a thick layer of ice. It looks magical, but unfortunately many trees broke under the weight. It was impressive to hear the sounds of the trunks and branches giving up under the ice!
