Falling over, again
Birches are amazingly resilient to bending. This time last year, a severe ice storm coated everything with an inch of ice and knocked out power through Christmas. This week, we have been dealt a cocktail of weather; cold, warm, snow, rain and ice. The birches has fallen over again under the weight of 6″ of heavy snow. I kept watching though the night as the trees sunk lower toward the power lines. Besides the broken branches, we were spared the worst this time. I am sure everything will bounce back upright by Spring.
