We had ice rain!

The sidewalk is good, the driveway not so much. We anticipate some warm temperatures today, above zero, and sunshine. That will clear things up.
A yearling was skating along the driveway yesterday morning, slide like Bambi, and headed for the snow bank. There is a layer of ice on top of 29 cm of snow.
I wore my snazzy new boots, with the pics. Chipped away on the sidewalk. It melted in yesterday's sun.
I need to clean my lens, methinks!!!


Annie helped me take photos.

If you don't have any place to go, there is something very peaceful and other worldly about an ice covered day.

You are right, Olga!
And Yam, you are kind but I wish I could focus better, and fiddle with the settings. I've lost my momentum!

"warm temperatures today". If you say so Jenn but it looks very cold to me, if picturesque.

Ice, frozen paths, skidding deer, and Annabelle brave enough to be out there too, all together a wonderland in winter at your home. Hope those flash new boots get lots of wear and tear...maybe outings is a better word to use. Keep safe on the ice!!

Ice rain - one of Nature's wonders. There's nothing, however, that the sun, the dominant Nature's wonder, cannot deal with. The snow and ice will get melted in no time, and allow normal life to go on. In the meantime, photography lovers will have their shooting opportunity.

Beautiful photos, love the icicles.

Annabelle looks like she's handling it well.

Winter weather can be a pain. I don't like the extreme changes.

Snow, ice and sunshine make for some lovely shots.
