Who doesn't love central Indiana's weather?  Last night most of Indianapolis got blasted with a severe ice storm. Just take a look at the radar from this seems a little ridiculous. The roads were so bad that my work was even closed for the day!

Since there was not much to do, I bundled up to head out to our garage to attempt to spread some salt on our sidewalks and stairs. I stepped outside and instantly realized the eeriness that surrounded me.  No noises.  No one to be seen anywhere.  As soon as I looked around, I saw the ice that completely covered everything outside.  From the power lines, to tree branches, to the gutters to the chain link fence.  I had entered an icy wonderland. I immediately pushed salting the sidewalks to the back-burner [which I regretted later] and decided to grab my camera. 

This time I ventured out into the yard to take some pictures. I definitely slipped and fell while shooting, but thankfully the camera survived!  If we get more ice tonight, I might try some comparison photos tomorrow.

If anyone has to go out in this tonight or tomorrow, please be careful!  It is certainly a mess.

Iced over bush in the landscaping
Grass from the front yard
Almost looks like the grass is inside of glass
Icicles hanging from the walkway light
