The Un-Fun Side of the Atlanta Ice Storm
Following the freezing rain we had around sunset began the period of tree collapses. The snapping often sounds like a gunshot. You can the feel the frozen ground tremor as the once majestic structure crashes into it. Fortunately, we only have 1 pine tree left on the property (ravaged by pine beetle infestation a few years back). We do have a poplar that I worry about from time to time. It seems very healthy though.
It’s painful for me to see my bermuda grass frozen over like this. I know it really isn’t doing it any harm. I walked through it a couple of times tonight with the puppies (those poor guys are a whole other story). The only way I can describe it as it looks like peanut brittle (it was twilight when I walked through). Weird, wild stuff.
