A Little Winter Weather

Yesterday we had a bit of ice/snow/sleet mix, which covered the ground and left ice on the trees. The winds picked up yesterday afternoon and sang to me all night long, sounding a bit like a mountain lion with its tail caught in a trap as the gusts rounded the corners of the house.

This morning when I rose around 7:30 a.m. it was 12 degrees outside with a wind chill of about -5 or thereabouts, depending on how one measures such things.

Coming after a February that was delightfully too warm, this has been an adjustment. I hope the fruit trees/grape vines and other food sources survive.

I shot these photos early yesterday morning with that little Nikon Coolpix 3200S, which I paid $60 for during a Black Friday deal a few years ago. It has been the best $60 I think I ever spent. To be such a throw-away camera I have taken some very decent photos with it.

A little ice on the trees.

Will the blooms on my forsythia return, I wonder?


  1. Stay warm! We received the cold temps here in KY, but no snow.
