You know it’s cold when the stream freezes!

I can’t decide if I see an image in the ice…do you?

A line of snow squalls blasted through our area last night bringing arctic chilling winds and plummeting temperatures.

Yikes!

I woke up this morning to more ice crystals on the storm windows and, with absolutely no desire to venture out into the bitter cold, looked to them for today’s inspiration.

One particular section seemed to have a fanciful quality about it. Or, is it just my sub-conscious mind reminding me that by this time next week, I will be experiencing a little pixie dust myself? 🙂

If you think Mourning Doves are dowdy, brown-colored birds, think again! 🙂

The steps leading off our sunroom to the back yard have become treacherous! They are completely encased in a ripply sheet of  ice due to the fact that they lie underneath the main house overhang and as the snow melts off the roof, it hits the staircase and freezes.

Salt and sand are the obvious solution, but before I did that, I needed today’s photo! 🙂
