Here, in Saint John, it seems to go back and forth between, freezing rain, ice pellets, sleet and frozen fog … you name it!
It’s quite amazing — it’s not raining right now, but still I can hear the ‘rattling’ of something coming down on the snow out on the balcony!
Ice storms can be quite devastating. I’ve only experienced one, and that was in January 2009 … we’d just moved to Saint John from Quebec. Just before I came to Canada they’d had a really bad one, but I’ve only heard about that.
As I said to my friend on Facebook last night … the only thing these ice storms are good for, is photography! As it was a first for me, back in 2009, I was in total awe of the ice formations on the beach. This was before the days of DSLR camera … we had the little Canon Powershot [which is a terrific little camera], when I tried to capture the glistening grass… I will never forget it.
