Ice Ice Baby!
I guess you could say we got off lucky considering the blizzard conditions in the mid-west part of the country, but we got a very nasty ice storm overnight. We woke up with our power off this morning, and although it was really only a minor inconvenience being out for just a few hours, it's been blinking off & on ever since. That part IS annoying when my computer dies while I'm in the middle of something! LOL
Anyway, I thought I'd share some pics if you're interested. The first photo is looking out my back door, down through the yard. The tree branches are all covered with ice and look SO pretty!
This photo is looking out my front door, toward my best friend's house (zoomed in). I just love the look of those beautiful, white, ice-coated tree branches!
This is a shrub just off the front porch completely encased in ice.......
And this is what the back deck looked like! We've been here over 23 years, and this is the first time I've seen icicles hanging off the deck railing like this!
On a brighter note - Punxsatawny Phil (our famous PA groundhog) did not see his shadow today, so we're due for an early spring! I'd say we all deserve it after the harsh winter we've been having! I almost forget what a sunny day looks like! LOL
Stay warm, take care and thanks for stopping by today!
