Last December we had a horrific ice storm in Central Massachusetts. We lost numerous hardwood trees, some pines and a lot of shrubs and perennials. We were without power for 5 days (we have an artesian well and a septic tank) so it was lots of fun in the freezing temperatures. Some of the towns nearby were without power for 2 weeks. There was a lot of damage to our barn and house and my son's car was totaled because two trees fell on it. This is all that remained of my rhododendrons.
