Winter Ice

Winter rain, sleet, and ice! Lovely! This is what we woke up to today. Ice is everywhere. 20 degrees and misty rain. Roads were slick, but by noon, they were wet and manageable.

The only good thing about ice is seeing the trees all frosted!

But by afternoon, small branches were falling off. I sure hope large branches don't break during the night. I've heard branches snapping and breaking when they have been covered with ice. It sure makes a loud noise! By late afternoon, the temp dropped to 11 degrees. The wind picked up and it was brisk to do chores.

And I love the pines. They look so feathery and are very pretty. Tomorrow, I'll stay home and enjoy the winter wonderland that I'm sure I will wake up to. We are expecting snow tonight and tomorrow.
