    While checking out our local weather in Gibsons on the Weather Network App February 14, 2021, this startling image popped up. I think it is absolutely beautiful! Wendy Cutler has contacted the photographer and YAY! we can share it.

    With a chance of freezing rain and sleet, will last weekend's ice storm be repeated?

    "It's heartwarming to know that my Okame frozen blossoms image is being enjoyed by others.
    Yes, please share the article and image"

    Can I just say that I agree it is a beautiful photo, but at the same time so very sad. Hope you understand my thoughts @Willard.

    Thank goodness it's only once in a generation. Well let's hope so.
