Bamboo in Heavy Snow

At least once or twice every winter here in Michigan we get a day of really heavy snow. Even though this has been one of the warmest winters in a long time, i woke up a couple of weeks ago and saw this in the back yard. There was a snow and ice storm and the bamboo was completely bent over and almost broken.Bamboo in Snow
But the bamboo is strong. I went out, shook off the snow and the trees immediately started unbending and straightening up.
