We got those flooding rains here in western NY turning our yard into an extension of the pond. Yuck..but I should have gone back into the woods because I know they would have had ice like you did. I have a question. I noticed in the bare woods that one tree really sticks out as it has this greenish-yellow stuff all up the bark..I think only on one side. It isn’t moss? What is it as I am really curious now..if you know.. Michelle
