Would you like some ice ?

Because we have plenty...though not as much as some.
I almost wish the leaves had finished turning or something - because they look kind of sickly up-close and encased in ice.

After I took the picture, I thought it looked cool. They looked almost like raindrops had been suspended in time.

We are in the lightest hit area of the region. Those north of us were hit worse - but we still have plenty of ice to go around. I wasn't sure how bad the weather was going to be - they said the ice storm was coming - but the local weather men always blow things out of proportion. It's almost embarrassing.

The kids want to go outside and explore but they can't - because it's been raining all day long. So the trees are icy and the ground is muddy. That adds up to a cold and mucky mess.

We'll stay inside and watch the tree thaw out instead. I am a bit wistful though...I sure would have liked to have some of that snow that everyone is talking about.

I agree. I would much rather snow than ice.

Oh, at this point I would take either with thrills and giggles. You see, I am a born and bred Northerner and here in Sweet Home Alabama it is a miserable 70 degrees (probably the only time I would ever describe that temp. as such), but nevertheless, it just does not feel like Christmas. :(
I long for even cold...LOL!

I would like snow for Christmas too. So far it has snowed twice here, but it hasn't even lasted 24 hours.

Wow, yours is the third blog I have been to that talked about the ice storm.
I'm glad we only have snow.
prayers for you and yours.

Wow! I guess I shouldn't tell you we were in the upper 70's yesterday. I'm sure we'll be complaining about the cold before too long.

I hope your power didn't go out with all that ice....once it was so bad here that cars were slipping out of their parking places on the ice. OH, that was fun.

I'd so much rather have snow than ice!

Rain here, but I won't complain. We've been under drought conditions since spring.

Is that what we're getting for the weekend? You can keep it!

I tagged you! Go to my HSB blog.

We have the snow and the cold, not too much ice though. I hope your area melts soon because I can only imagine that being surrounded by ice is no fun!

Regina said...

I do not envy anyone surrounded by ice right now!! I would have to choose snow!
