Ice Storm in Toledo

Backlit ice on tree branches creates a surreal effect after an ice storm in Toledo, Ohio(Toledo, OH) The ice in the trees near my garage looks a bit like an illuminated spider web, and though the ice storm turned out to be less severe than predicted, the night landscape in my area is covered with a glistening sheen of reflected light.

Nighttime noises seem to echo with an especially tinny reverberation this evening, and those who venture out should be aware that many roads are quite slick. I nearly wiped out in my own driveway just taking out the trash tonight, and I trust that by morning the city will have dumped enough salt to make my commute less hazardous.
