I like to joke that we get snow here in election years. And in 2000 we sort of had an election, but we definitely got snow. Several years' worth overnight. Now to a lot of you 22 inches of snow is trivial. But it was a record for Raleigh. And predictably the city was pretty well paralyzed. Snow removal? We don't do that here.Violence Unsilenced

That's alot of snow, but I come from an area that would be paralyzed over 2 or 3 inches! Nice pic.

Those icicles look "dangerous" but it's a fantastic shot.

I've got to admit I was a little scared when I first saw this scene. Considering where I'm from, icicles shouldn't scare me. But these are like multiple daggers, waiting to slice down onto the unlucky soul who walks below them.

Beautiful composition!
