Some people imagine an “ice storm” as hail, sleet, or even snow that melts during the day and then freezes again at night. It is actually what its names says: a storm of ice.
In the temperate rain forest ice storms cause major damage! The people living in this climate are also not used to such low temperatures or hazardous driving conditions.
When I went to get my mail I had to work for it since the mailbox was covered in a layer of ice.
On Friday night things got bad.
I heard a large exposition at about 3 in the morning. I hit the ground thinking that the pine tree next to the house was coming down. It was actually the power poles.
