And now, for something completely different :wow: Not my usual subject matter, but upon hearing that an overnight fire had resulted in a couple buildings in downtown Plattsmouth, NE being encased in ice, it was too tempting to document. What you see here is the result of fighting a fire in single digit temperatures :nod: While the fire ravaged several businesses (mainly the Quart House Pub), it did create for a very unique and surreal scene :) Thoughts are with all those affected, and hats off to the seven fire crews who responded to this blaze. :salute:

I've been in situations like that before, we've had fire trucks freeze to the ground before because of all the ice build up.  Awesome shot!

The Plattsmouth Fire Department soon realized that they were all too effective at fighting fires and accidentally triggered a second Ice Age.

Interesting! I had seen this image or a similar one when googling the polar vortex.  It is definitely a powerful statement to the elements, both fire and ice as well as the people who put themselves in the middle! :) Thank you so much for sharing your work.

I loved this since the first day i came across it, but i have to warn you, i have seen this picture all across the internet in various articles... perhaps you should consider adding the watermark closer to the center (the watermark is always cropped out).
Have a nice day! :party:
