A Little Bit Of Ice

A very cold artic blast of air hit our state this week. We'll have below normal temperatures for Thanksgiving. Last year it was in the 70's, this year...highs in the 40's. Big difference! We seemed to have dodged the bullet in terms of weather. We only got the cold air and little bit of freezing rain and sleet. I know some of you have had a rough time with heavy snow and ice. When I saw the icicles beginning to form on the power lines and trees, I knew it was time to brave the cold and get some pictures. Good thing I went right on out, it didn't last long.
 
 
My camellia's were quite pretty covered with shiny drops of ice and rain. They are such hardy bushes and love to bloom in the colder weather. It's kind of like the last hurrah of the season.

 
The wind blowing  causing the ice on the leaves and branches to crackle and pop. It almost sounded like music to me.
 
 
 



 
You know I love cold weather. Colder weather lets me add an extra quilt to our bed and wear my winter robe and fuzzy slippers. Not only do I enjoy the cold weather, I have the holidays with family to look forward to. Wherever you are, I hope you're safe and warm today!

  3. A little bit of ice ... maybe. A lot of ice ... NO! But you sure got some beautiful photos. I wish I had some of your endurance for the cold so I could shoot more outdoors in the winter but I'm just not good at the cold weather thing.

  4. Quite a lot of ice, I would say! Poor flowers and leaves. I like the third shot of the bough.

  7. Can you believe for all that cold frigid air, northwest Arkansas (at least Fayetteville) didn't get diddly squat? : ( My son and I were doing the snow dance like crazy but nothing happened. Oh well, winter is just around the corner and I've got my fingers crossed.

  8. How wondrous! That slick shiny coat of ice on everything. And you have done a great job capturing its beauty - and those tiny reflections.
