Raining Under The Trees

Many times I've taken a walk during a light rain, and noticed how when I walked under a tree, there would be very little rain getting through.  Only between the trees did there seem to be any rain.  Today, however, I experienced the opposite phenomenon, in which there was rain under the trees, but none between them.  This is because last night there was freezing rain in my area, which coated the trees with ice.  Today, with milder temperatures, the ice on the trees is melting and falling from them.  In other words, it's raining under the trees.  Here are some icebound trees in my neighborhood.

Here are a few more trees, with a lake behind them:

This row of bushes also received a coating of ice.
