After the recent ice storm, the subsequent weather was a night of rain at 33 degrees with wind. This brought with it a slooooow removal of the ice from the trees over a period of, oh say, over one night. All night the house was pelted with chunks of ice that sounded like golf balls being thrown at the house, about every 15-45 seconds like clockwork. It was amazing in a disgusting kind of way that it could go on for so long and not just get over with. By about 8 am all the ice was finally gone.
