Freezing rain

Guess I have been lucky last night.
We had freezing rain that lasted until the morning, when the temperatures rose again above zero.
Some damage but repairable.

'Naked' SteppIR, saved my shafts!

The inverted L for 80M survived although it was bending over

The 160M inverted-L survived by a miracle.
The top was bending very much but didn’t break. Guess the fiber is still rather fresh.

But the main reason for surviving was that the horizontal part of the wire had landed in a tree.
This lift saved my 160M system….

About 0.5 cm of ice was on the wires. What would have been the result without this lift?
