Looked outside today and there was exceptional frost covering everything with icy spicules. Thought I'd share a few snaps I took.

Beautiful and much the same up here in Toronto with the freezing rain.

Lot's of tree branches are breaking with the weight of the ice. Driving is not going to be fun tomorrow ...

Great photos, thanks for sharing! Ice storm forecast for here tonight and tomorrow, up to 3/4 of an inch. Hoping the power stays on!

Frost is one thing. Ice and broken branches is just nasty. Hang in there!

Nice pix!

Reminds me of one I snapped the other day in our yard of an apple who refused to let go. The deer and turkeys love 'em.

PAP that's because they get high/drunk off them. Laughing emoticon Laughing emoticon When Mike and i went to Quebec we bought some iced cider. They leave the apples on the trees until they freeze and then make them into cider. Very high alcohol content. Doessn't take to much to get drunk off of that cider.

poor badly cared for tree. We have all cut budgets for our street trees and ice storms take them out in droves.

Interesting. Apple trees are new to us. Makes sense then why they told us to wait until after the first hard frost to pick them -- makes them sweeter we were told. Same with the Concord grapes in the yard.
