Yeppers. It happened. It iced last night.

If you just added a bit of grape to this slushy it would probably taste pretty good!

I love this picture of the fence taken from my porch.

In this one do you see the trees to the left that have the branches about to give way to the ice? Joe has been keeping an eye on these 2 trees to see if/when the branches might fall.

The fence looks pretty cool too.

We are lucky to still have electricty. It has gone off and on a few times but so far so good. Wish us luck!

It is pretty ,but the roads I am guessing are not! Stay safe.

GAK! We're supposed to get down to the 40's tonight and I'm already dreading it. I don't know how well I'd handle a real winter...
Stay off the roads!

We haven't had a Carolina ice storm in a while. I'm glad. It ruins the trees and the power lines always go down. Stay safe.

Beautiful to look at! But I'm sure not so much to live with on a daily basis! Stay warm!

It is so pretty to look at, but it's not something I want to experience on a regular basis!

Hope the electricity holds out for ya'll!

I love that bottom picture, did you convert it to black and white or did it just come out like that? It's wonderful!

Glad you have had the heater running, stay warm and safe.

I wondered if you had gotten ice until I read some of what Jill wrote on Facebook and I had NOT received any correspondence from you today. hint hint

Great pictures, but I know it's tough. We lived a long time in the East and experienced many of these ice storms.

I even saw a report on the Weather Channel from Paducah.

You can keep it. I don't miss it.

I just spoke with Lisa, they have been without power since 11:15AM. More ice is expected overnight and it may be a while before she posts again.

Pony Girl said...

Yikes! That is crazy. Lovely, but crazy. I hope the horsey's are warm. And that you don't lose power, because then we don't get to hear from you! ;)

Andrea said...

It is really dangerous, but oh so beautiful!! I love the pictutre of the ice on the fences!! Great shots, and I hope you are staying warm!

Bill said...

I hope the power is not still off!

Scott W said...

Joe called me today and said they are fine, that they might not have power until some time next week!

YIKES!!!

Pretty to look at...not so much to have to deal with.
Hope all is well!!

Just wanted to let you know that I am praying for you, your safety, and that your power gets restored very soon.

the ice is so pretty, too bad it is so destructive.

What a difference a day or two makes! The ice is so pretty, but i know that it must be causing havoc. Prayers are with you.
