We had an ice storm last night. Unfortunately the sun is not out today, or we would really be sparkling. Imagine this tree in sunshine.

This is a very old Maple weighted down with ice.

If the sun comes out, I'll take some pictures with a bit of sparkle.

Fortunately, I went to our locker, yesterday and found my Trax. These are wire soles that attach to boots to prevent you from slipping!! I'd like to get out for a short walk, but it might be too dangerous. Tree limbs are snapping under the weight of the ice and power lines are down.

Robert Frost (love that name) had a great poetic take on days like today. Here is his poem Fire and Ice.

Fire and Ice
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice. 
This is not Hell frozen over, but it would be, if it got any colder!!

Have a pretty day!!
