Ice.....Ice....Baby!!











This is what we woke up to this...the 2nd day of Winter!!!

So far.....I am less than enchanted with the newest Season's arrival!

I did not even step a toe outside to grab these photos...

All from toasty & warm inside!!! 

A lot of people lost power....we are lucky!!

Pot roast in the slow cooker....finishing up a few odds and ends...

Not there yet,tho'!!!

Hope you all are having a great weekend....and not bothered by the storms!

                                       ******

It means a lot.......coming from all you guys!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.....hope to get around and visit you all!!

                             Cheers!  :o)

  1. Good Morning...so glad you could stay inside nice and toasty warm to get those fabulous icy pictures. I have to admit I love looking at your winter pictures, they are so stunning...but I do enjoy Sunny Southern CA for my living. Your photography is so excellent. Burrrr...

  3. Oh wow. It may be cold, but isn't it pretty. Love the ice on the red stems. Not nice for those who have lost power or who have to go out in it though. Keep warm.

  5. So lad you didn't lose your power, Linda. The ice is beautiful but can be really scary, huh? Thanks for sharing your photos, that ice is impressive. Stay warm and have a good night.

  7. Wow...you weren't kidding about the ice! That's amazing! It's beautiful as long as you don't have to go out in it and your power stays on!

    I just have food prep to do now...and a quick clean of the house. My kitchen floor needs mopped like you wouldn't believe. ha.

  10. We haven't ventured out on the roads since last Thursday. I did trek around the garden though ... very gingerly. Worked at getting the ice of the van ... but at least everything in the garage was ice free!!! I sometimes wonder why we have a garage. Had to climb in through the back lift gate of the van to get inside ... no way was the ice around the doors going to give. Everything cleared off in the end. We might go out this morning, just for something to do. Have a lovely day.

  11. Ice. Beauty and destruction.
    Hoping everyone is safe and warm there.

    My memories of our last great ice storm are still fresh ten years later.
    Hope your day is wonderful!

  12. You got some pretty ice pictures Linda. It sure did a lot of damage up there. We had ice pellets and freezing rain here too - all weekend long - and still today. Thankful the power is still on. I want to wish you and your hubby and family a very happy Christmas! Enjoy every moment with Miss V. Hugs, Pamela

  13. Ice is so beautiful to look at, but I don't blame you one bit for taking the pictures from inside. Thanks for showing us your part of the world.

  15. We were without power from 9am to the wee hours of the next day!!! We played cards by candlelight and huddled around the gas fireplace for warmth! It was kind of nice, actually.
