All day she kept visiting - long past her welcome.
This is NOT snow.
It is between 3 and 4 inches of sleet covered by freezing rain.
Jim Cantore, the sexy guy from the Weather Channel, was here - not a good thing.
We were without power from 4AM to 11AM. Then again from 1PM to 5 PM.
We are currently holding our breath.
Overnight more freezing rain, cold temps and falling limbs will probably disrupt electrical service again.
Two limbs fell at the end of the drive and promptly froze to the concrete.
I am curious:
Do you say the power or the electric?
The dogwood is standing tall even with all its icy covering.
This is mid-morning.
The urn in icy splendor.
Seating for four under the Crape Myrtle tree which is usually standing up straight.
It could have taken a lesson from the dogwood.
I do not think he will survive the snow from two weeks ago and then this deep freeze.
I did remove the water can collection from the stoop so we would not trip over them.
I did not venture past the first step.
Way too icy.
Willie and Scout did romp a bit in the backyard, but when the limbs started falling, they banged on the door to come back in.
Those of you who live in tall pines know that creaky, crackling sound they make when iced over.
I know two big trees fell somewhere in the neighborhood - both shook the house.
No major damage here, but I can see a large oak limb across my camellias at the back fence.
We are being warned trees will be falling tonight.
The coffin carrier and the pick-up are resting comfortably in the driveway because we are not about to attempt a road trip.
Besides, nothing is open.
Why is one facing one way and the other the other way?
Chucks and I had a slight disagreement about the best way to park the cars in case we had to get out.
Mr. Frog, the rain gauge, says four inches of sleet is all he can take.
He is hoping for spring rains soon.
At dusk I have to forgive the Ice Witch a tiny bit.
The soft blue of the yard is beautiful.
Now go away.
Go away, Ice Witch.
The Ice Witch Go-eth!
I know it was Karma that sent the Ice Witch since I published two posts bragging about the sun.
I honestly do not know how those of you in Northern climes can take this all the time.
