Ice Storm...

Monday, January 12, 2009

Here are some pictures of the ice storm we had last Wednesday. It was quite hard to take pictures since everything really was a sheet of ice. I had to practically hold on to Michael to get around. I'm so old!

20 minutes of TRYING to break up the ice...I gave up! Oh, and WHERE is the Colonel you might ask? He's in sunny California overseeing an exercise. Of course, he was very quick to point out to me that it wasn't exactly sunny, but overcast...poor thing and he missed the snowstorm this weekend as well! Hurry home honey!

Tree in the front yard...I think this looks really pretty!

Michael on his way to throw salt on Oma's driveway...such a good boy!

Since we really didn't have to go anywhere and more importantly, the power did not go out, it was rather pretty to look at! Enjoy your day!

  1. Great pictures, Lois. I love the one of the tree, too. Pretty funny about Phil missing it all. When Steve used to travel he missed every snow and flood we ever had...now that he's home he's like "wow, I never knew there was snow in Seattle!" Whatever!

  2. Such pretty pictures.. I love enjoying a snowstorm and ice storm from inside a warm and cozy house, just not when I have to venture out in it. Glad to hear you were all safe.

  5. Great pics! I usually hate ice storms cause the weight usually makes the power go off and tress fall!

    But your pics are beautiful. Glad you didn't have a power outage!

  7. The picutres remind of the ice storm (I think) it was @ 3 years ago! We drove up to the Pocono Racetrack and I remember thinking that it looked like it was a different world!Very pretty! I love the song you just posted!

  8. Lois, I linked to your blog in my recent post. Please read it and let me know if you're ok with it. It's about random acts of kindness. It's all good, but just let me know if you'd rather me take it out.
    Blessings,
    Becky
