The Ice and snow that covered the region on Sunday may have been pretty, and fairly easy to clean up, but it did cause some problems for a few residents.

Ice encased branches are stunning, but often prove to be too much for the trees. The heavy accumulation on many branches caused them to snap, littering the streets and yards with everything from tiny sticks to whole limbs.

A few homes lost power, telephone and cable service and even caused some communication problems for Santa’s Helper.

As the temperatures dropped the danger of black ice became a concern.

Here are some photos from the storm.
