West Salem - Ice on Trees

Snow and Ice in Salem Oregon

We have received nearly a foot of snow with a mix of about 3/4" of ice added to it on Saturday night. It's snowing again!

The weight of the ice-filled snow covering the branches of some of the fir trees was too much and a few of them have broken off.

I wonder if the fir tree will survive this. It lost about half of its branches during our last ice storm a few years ago.
