Under The Ice

 
There was a nice coating on the foliage in front of our house Saturday morning. As the day went on the temperature crept just over freezing as a liquid drizzle fell. The ground was relatively warm so the streets were fine. The rest of the day was simply gray, chilly and damp.

There's another wave rolling in early Sunday morning. Temps a couple of degrees below 32/0 (your choice) with freezing rain starting again in the small hours. Probably a quarter of an inch/.6 cm of ice. We'll see.


And thanks to our friend William in Ottawa for the tip about Yaktrax! I have complete trust in a Canadian's advice about how to walk in ice and snow.

Great shots! It reminds me of all those years growing up in Quincy.

Admittedly freezing rain does have such a pretty effect in the way it coats things... even if it can be quite destructive in the process.

Nice cold icy images. Hopefully no power lines will ice up and collapse.
