About this Image

Title Ice Storm - 1969
Date 1969
Description Image shows a piece of construction equipment on a snow covered road. There appears to be a plow attached to the front of the machine, perhaps to clear the roadway of snow and debris. Many of the trees that are located alongside of the road are bent under the weight of the ice. The image was taken in the Peaks of Otter area of the Blue Ridge Parkway in 1969.
