Looking down the line, ice covered wires and trees

There are still people without power this morning, in at least three counties.  Daughter Hollie was displaced for a couple of days as parts of Brewer lost power.
  The other damage is to the trees, ice is heavy and branches break off, or sometimes the tree will split in two.  People who rely on their trees for a living are worried now that the ice has remained for a week.
  Yesterday the sun came out and some of the line locally had the ice drop off even though it was only 14 degrees, more sun today might help.  A new storm is being predicted for Sunday and Monday during which more snow would only add weight to already stressed trees and power lines.
  We should all be thankful for the crews from power companies and tree companies for New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and New Brunswick/Nova Scotia have come to assist.
From the hilltop.  Small trees weighted down, they will freeze to the surface
and stay bent for life, or they break.
