This was the view out my back door this morning. That used to be a carport that sat between the house and the garage. Until the tree to the left decided that it really didn't like supporting all that ice on those branches. Fortunately, most of the tree will be salvagable - it is a maple that turns a brilliant red-orange in the fall. Also fortunately, no damage to the house or the garage and no one was under the carport when the limb fell. Most of the ice melted today, though it will refreeze tonight. The mess will be cleaned up and the fence repaired by the end of next week.
