    Winter Ice in Virginia


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Lo8i told me, 'In general, most people are calm about the weather even though it is a fairly early storm. No damage on our street, but one of my husband's co-workers in nearby Vienna had a tree fall that hit their garage and a neighbor's house, causing severe damage. In another close neighborhood, a tree fell wiping out a mailbox and just narrowly missing a car. The ice seemed to cause a lot of tree damage and power outages.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    Compared to the weather in Minnesota where my sister-in-law lives, this storm was very minor. Nevertheless, the schools were closed and even the government was on delay and liberal leave. The greatest inconvenience from this storm for us was the power outage, which lasted through the night of the ice until late the next afternoon. With the power out and not being able to work on the computer, I dashed out into the yard for a few photos of icicles hanging from the deck table, chairs and even the dogwood tree.
