LOOK!!!! TREE-CICLES!


We managed to go all winter without being absolutely miserable with cold weather. Not much snow, not too cold.  My kinda winter right? Yeah, well as soon as I think I'm in the clear and Mother Nature can just 'BRING ON THE SPRING' of course it's gonna hit! We've had like 2' of snow in the past week with an expected foot and a half two days ago. But... lucky for us the wind was blowing at a sustained 40 mph (60 mph gusts) and that kept the snow from actually LANDING on the ground. Instead; the snow stuck to whatever it slapped up against and froze. Today, we have TREE-CICLES! I'm talking 1-2" thick ice stuck to the side or EVERYTHING! We also have bush-cicles, grass-cicles, mailbox-cicles, Hummer-cicles.. well, you get the idea. =o)    Oh, and the Hummer-cicles? No more! Took my baby to the car wash and let those boys give my baby a little pampering. =o)  Anyhoo - here are some pics of the "nature-cicles". Man, it sure was nice getting the camera out again!

Great photos! We had a bad ice storm a few years ago and everything looked like that... crazy!

So as much as I love your tree pictures....... I need a Mason and Ashli fix. Not to mention the dog. I think we blog readers are a little overdue :)

Hope all is going well for you!
