It appears to happen every three years or so - Atlanta gets snow and ice for one or two days before the temperature rises back into the 50s and it all melts.
This is my backyard all magical looking around 8:15am. I am so happy i woke up early that morning so I could see this! By 10am it had all melted away.
Those are bamboo trees in the back which usually stand so tall the obscure the building behind them. The weight of the ice bent them over into bushes.
During the summer when all the trees are full of leaves and the kudzu has grown over everything it's a different kind of magical. Especially in June and July when the fireflies are out and the whole area literally looks like a christmas tree full of sparkling lights.
One of my giant metal sunflowers...
And another flower...
