An ice storm with freezing rain and below-freezing temperatures passed through our area overnight and during the early morning hours on Groundhog Day, February 2, 2011. Tree branches were covered in a layer of ice. Temperatures reached above the freezing point in the day time. Falling ice could be seen and heard throughout the day, falling down from the treetops. The ground was still covered by a foot of snow from an earlier snow storm. The weight of the ice caused a few small branches to fall out of the trees, but otherwise the park sustained no damage.
