Stepping outside this morning the first thing I noticed was the sound of popping and snapping of wood and birds singing. This was the first day the temperature broke the freezing mark.

Nature’s singing.

For the past three days the trees and surrounding shrubbery have been bowed down heavily with ice.

The sun makes its appearance for the first time this week to set the captive trees free from the ice.

Garrett Lewis, KFSM-TV’s Chief Meteorologist, has a Weather Blog at 5NEWS and he drove around the area taking a video of the damaged trees. It’s a really sad sight.
