Ice-coated branches come crashing down

Photos by Tom Rivers – The ice storm overnight coated trees and their branches with ice. It’s a striking sight, but some of the weighed down branches have snapped off, including this one on East State Street in front of the Orleans County Courthouse.

The courthouse looms in the background of this photo.

A big hunk of a tree on the courthouse lawn fell after being stressed from the storm. The County Clerks Building is in the background.

The First United Methodist Church in Albion is in the background of this photo.

There are a lot of limbs down, including this one on East Park Street. Power is out in some spots.

Today is a good day to wander around with your camera. You don’t have to go far. This is a tree in my backyard.
