    The Brighter Side of the East Coast Ice Storm

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Ahmed Ansari and his family have been home from work and school for two days because of the ice storm and subsequent snow, but the Chantilly, Virginia, family is seeing the bright side of the wintry weather. On the dawn after the ice storm, December 9, Ansari saw a pair of cardinals perched on the family’s bird feeder. “The biting cold and wet weather that keeps most of us inside doesn't keep the local birds from enjoying an early meal at our feeder,” he said. “It was lovely, and I wanted to capture the miracle through my lens as soon as the sun was up.”
