January Here

Yesterday began with snow, followed by sleet which eventually turned to freezing rain. That freezing rain slowly but steadily accreted on every twig and branch. Well past nightfall, the snow began again, leaving a heavy confectioner’s sugar dusting over all.

When today brought bright winter sun in blue skies, I headed out to take a few photographs. This is my favorite. It was taken just down the road, across the street, where the stream flows into the pond.

I'm going to be gazing at that picture come Sunday when, the prediction is, it will become unspeakably hot.

Hi B2B -
Thanks! They're predicting colder temperatures and a series of little storms, so we'll do our best to stay warm and safe!

Hi Lee,

Apologies again for only stopping by again now. I've been thinking about all my blogging friends so much, but just don't as much time for my blog lately. So, playing catch up again in between work...

This is a stunning photo and you live in a very beautiful (freezing) part of the world!!
