Second ice storm in a week hits Memphis, Tennessee

See also

It is only December 8, 2013, and not even winter yet, but someone forgot to tell Mother Nature that. The Memphis area, and much of the state of Tennessee is hit by the second ice storm in a week. The ice had not melted from the first storm, when the second one added additional ice to the landscape, causing power outages and damage from fallen trees.

Even though the second storm did not have as much moisture associated with it as the first one, the ice that remained on trees and power lines accumulated rapidly and caused more damage than the first storm had. In addition to power outages, bridges and overpasses remain hazardous, and there are many patches of black ice.

Ice is much more dangerous than snow, but it is beautiful and it turns the trees into works of art. The pictures in the slideshow were taken in Fayette County, Tennessee, about 20 miles east of Memphis.
