Yikes! Ice!

Iced palm

As a quick update to yesterday's post, the light morning snow changed to sleet later in the day, and to freezing rain sometime during the night.  And when it comes to palms, ice is the enemy!  Fortunately everything had just a light coating of ice, just enough to bend all the fronds down but no so much as to break them.  But now we have more snow moving in.  After several unusually mild and snow-free winters, maybe this will be the winter to put my hardy palms to a proper test?
