Oh, The Weather Outside is Frightful

We got some wintery weather this past week as a snow and ice storm blew through the Northern Virginia area...we don't usually have storms like this so early in December. I hope it's not a sign of more bad weather to come! I snuck outside with my camera to capture a few photos of the pretty ice...sadly, the "pretty ice" destroyed a lot of trees in our area, and we even lost power for a few hours during the storm. I'm grateful it was only a few hours, though - many others had no power all day, which would get chilly very fast in these freezing temps!

I'm still in denial about Christmas being here in 12 days...I'm not ready! I must tackle my Christmas to-do list and get things crossed off. Thanks so much for stopping by - I'm linking up with Kim's Friday Finds today.

  3. Freezing rain/ice is one of nature's bittersweet things. Love the photos with the branches encased in the ice.

  5. These are lovely! I dislike ice would rather have just plain snow but you sure made the best of it with your camera in hand. We had ice this past weekend ... without the snow.

  9. As I am reading this post the radio is playing that song! Your pictures are beautiful but ice storms can cause so much destruction. Hopefully this is not a prediction of things to come.

  10. Pretty ice! Pretty to look at but not to deal with. My list is getting shorter each day.

  11. Ice sculpture, when crystal is so beautiful, and capturing branches with touchs of green and red is breathtaking. What great shots you got. I wish something this beautiful wouldn't cause so much destruction. I remember when we lived in Chicago, the amazing ice storms, but the aftermath was devastating. I will choose the beauty.
