Good day, crafters! I hope everyone on this side of the pond is starting to thaw out from all the ice and snow. What a crazy few weeks in Myrtle Beach. We had an ice storm here in our usual sub-tropic surroundings. Take a look at a few scenes from Oak Pond:
The ice was beautiful, but in the end very destructive. We accumulated almost an inch of it throughout the county. Many of the native Live Oak Trees throughout the area succumbed to the weight of the ice. It caused their large limbs to break off, damaging some and completely destroying others. Most of these trees are hundreds of years old so the loss is very sad. The good new is we have thawed out and the weather forecast has South Carolina seeing warmer temperatures.
