Ice Ice, Baby

The storm that hit the midwest with lots of snow and wind hit our area with some snow, sleet, freezing rain and ice.  By the end, we had about a half of an inch of solid ice on everything.  The trees looked really pretty - like they were dipped in glass - but the rest of the world was treacherous.  The temps slowly rose above freezing and then the melt started.  Not only did the ice look like glass but it sounded like glass breaking as it hit the ground.  Temps dropped well below freezing at night so everything froze again.

Believe it or not, these are not black and white photos.  
Everything was pretty monochromatic yesterday morning.

Some kind of wild daisy

Today will be below freezing but sunny and tomorrow should be in the mid-30s with sun.  More rain/snow for Saturday.  Punxsutawney Phil is predicting an early spring - I sure hope he's right!

I hope he's right too! Scarily beautiful pictures... isn't it amazing that things can endure winter and come back again in the spring?

Stay warm!
