frozen

We drove this road to Target yesterday...


...not a good idea....it was a total sheet of ice.
We made it home safely but did manage to crash into our own garage door.
No damage to the car...just the door.



But I had to get my 3-D glasses for the Grammy's.


This is the field behind my house.



We had freezing fog and drizzle.
It makes these incredible spiky icicles.


...they are kind of creepy.




I am hoping my trees survive this abuse from Mother Nature.
Today was a waste because we lost power...so I pulled the couch up next to the fireplace and caught up on reading. I tried painting but didn't have enough light. Everything I wanted to do required electricity....something I tend to take for granted until I lose it.
The good news....it's back on and DH brought home a pizza for dinner.

So sorry to hear you lost power, but very glad it came back quickly. We didn't even have a blink so I'm very grateful. Stay warm and safe!!

LOL! Sorry! I couldn't help but laugh because NOTHING keeps me out of Target either!
Beautiful photos.
Sorry about you losing power! 2 summers ago the whole town here lost power for 3 days! It was unbelieveable how much you depend on electricity!

Ohh, we are supposed to get sleet and freezing rain Tuesday, keeping our fingers and toes crossed that we keep power. Glad you didn't damage any of those cool vehicles. Take care.

I am so sorry you were without power for so long. It IS hard to do the things you love when there is no light, or power. The photos, however, are stunning..the spikes, the glass bubbles on the trees and bushes. Gorgeous.
