Ice Storm

I left my toasty warm house this afternoon to get a few pictures of the beautiful ice sculptures left by Mother Nature.  Most of the ice should melt tomorrow, so I didn’t want to miss my opportunity.     It didn’t take very long for me to do my business and get back home.   It’s frigid out there. 

As I walked through the nature conservation, the trees were loud with their creaking and groaning, but even with all the noise, the woods were very peaceful.    It felt good to breathe some fresh air.

The evergreens were especially pretty covered in ice.

The bird feeders at the conservation were the place to be today.   Unfortunately,  the birds there are WILD and they didn’t like my presence around their feeders.    Bright red Cardinals were flitting all around, but these two little guys were the best I could do.

This is a common sight right now.   Trees everywhere are breaking under the strain of the added weight.   We have friends who are STILL without power because of fallen trees on power lines.
