The Great Ice Storm of 1998

Yes, it has been quite a winter thus far, and we've had some what of some trouble with ice up here in the North. I was able to capture a very few images of the ice storm. Here they are. You can click on each image to bring up a larger version.

Some ice-encrusted branches on a tree in Burlington. The ice is about an inch in diameter here, I'd say.
We also had hail. Here is some of the hail that fell on my backyard pick nick table. The hail is pea-sized and was accompanied by thunder and lightning.
Our backyard trees suffered some minor damage. Here is our small maple tree with some downed branches from our 100-foot pine trees.
Some ice-encrusted branches on a tree in my backyard. The ice never seemed to get as thick where I live than it did elsewhere, but this tree is protected overhead by a very large stand of tall pines, and they may have gotten the brunt of the ice.
One of our shrubs in our front yard. Pretty heavily encrusted, both from the rain and from the run-off from the roof.
Some of the ice drippings from off of the deck in the front of my house.
