ice storm!

Told ya it wouldn’t last–freezing rain has been pattering down since late last night.  It is hauntingly, deceptively beautiful, and very dangerous.  There are folks driving in this stuff.    See the new shininess?!

I'M not walking out to the compost bin, thank you very much!

and, I'm not walking that-a-way either!

that's more than the 1/10" of ice predicted!

      it is scary… my corkscrew willow’s branches are bent over almost to the ground with the ice that has gathered even since I took the pics. >:-{

    Hope your power doesn’t go out, Laurel. We had an icestorm in Lexington a while back that took out our power for 6 days. Then we moved to Haiti and found out what it was really like to do without. Only in Haiti it wasn’t COLD!

    Stay safe and warm, my friend!

      Me, too, hope our power doesn’t go out like so many 10s of 1000s around the region right now.

      Our sole source of heat is a woodstove and the Big Mister just came inside with a huge load of wood so that should be good till tomorrow. As for the rest of life without power, we have propane lights and cooking devices if we really care.

      One of the funny strips does a piece about a woman who goes to Haiti–“Stone Soup.” Do you know it?

      hugs to you–I bet winter finds you soon!
