So I'm a bit early. My blog, my schedule don't you know. I worked hard on this yesterday traipsing around town checking out the scene. This is the first time I've seen the trees stay coated with freezing rain. Other times it's melted right away, but not this time. I saw dozens of branches down due to the weight of the ice on the limbs. Anyway welcome to our winter wonderland.
See how the trees are all frosted? And when the breeze picks up, you can hear them all tinkling.
Sun and palm trees are not a hard sell these days.
Doesn't this house look surprised? Or shocked at what happened to its pet tree?
I felt like I was walking around in a painting.
The parks are deserted.
There was a good half inch of ice coating everything. Red certainly pops in this landscape.
This is right outside my door in the front yard.
This is the tree they have up outside the market. A truly flocked tree, no?
My favorite shot at the end of the afternoon when the sun finally popped out. It took me over an hour to dislodge the car from its icy prison and then I put it in the garage. I think it will stay there for a few days until they get the city cleaned up. Hope you enjoyed these arctic pictures!
