A punishing ice storm slammed Slovenia earlier this week, paralyzing parts of the country. Freezing rain encased trees, cars, and power lines in unthinkably thick layers of ice.

“Three days of blizzards and a freak ice storm have inflicted “the worst devastation in living memory” in the small Alpine country of Slovenia as life in half of the country is frozen in place,” writes Business Insider.

Here are some of the not-to-be believed photos from this storm:
