Our area was hit last Sunday with an ice storm and then two days later our first snow. We only got about three inches of snow. It has been very cold here, so not much melting has occurred.
The ice storm caused some trees to come down in our area, but many more large tree limbs (particularly pine) and branches fell from the weight of the ice. Luckily we missed out on the snowstorm this weekend. It just grazed us with a brief period of sleet and freezing rain yesterday.
Here are some photos I took around the yard of ice-covered trees and plants, the snow, and limbs that came down in our yard.

I think the Farmer's Almanac was right about this winter being colder with more snow than normal.
