Latest Winter Storm Leaves Evansville Under a Sheet of Dangerous Beauty [PHOTOS]

Despite the inherited dangers that came with the winter storm that blanketed the Tri-State under a sheet of ice earlier in the week, such as hazardous driving conditions and power outages for several hundred people in the area (almost all of which has been restored as of this post), Old Man Winter’s icy footprint can also be quite pretty in its own weird sort of way.

Weather has always fascinated me with it’s ability to be so calm and peaceful one moment, and so destructive and dangerous the next, like some kind of schizophrenic monkey. Think about it. Is there anything nicer than a light breeze on Spring day? Now, take that exact same air, speed it up, twirl it around a little bit, and it will knock down your house.

The same goes for water. A few drops, or even a glass full can be quite refreshing. Multiply that by a gajillion (I’m not good with numbers), and it can wipe whole city’s off the map. Freeze it and it’s been known to wipe out entire species. It’s pretty awesome when you think about it. Not “awesome” as in, “Dude, that was an awesome Twisted Willy Grinder you pulled on the half-pipe,” but “awesome” as in something as simple and necessary to life as air and water can be manipulated into something so terrifying.

It wasn’t that long ago that Evansville found itself under a frozen blanket of water, but while this latest storm didn’t hit us quite as hard, the images it left behind are equally cool (pun somewhat intended).

The following pictures are a few I took around my home and neighborhood, as well as here at the station in downtown Evansville. If you have any you’d like to share, feel free to submit them using the form below. Enjoy.
