Woke up this morning to more ice — wow! Just had to take some pictures to share.
Here’s the kitchen table — that’s a rose bush right outside the window. You can see the oak trees are all coated in ice and are leaning over the back fence.
Some Lindheimer Senna seedpods:
It was so quiet and peaceful out — only sounds were the icicles dripping, ice cracking, and a blue jay squawking — he landed in the cedar elm, looked around a few times and then started squawking — he was probably wondering what was going on — we don’t get weather like this very often!
More freezing rain is on the way today, keep your fingers crossed that the power stays on. Right now there are 6,000 people without power. Tomorrow it’s supposed to get up to 38 and then Friday will be in the 40’s so it should all be gone by the weekend. It’s 30 out right now. Brr. Time for another hot chocolate!
Lunchtime update — no more ice so far — and things are melting a bit. Hacho miso soup with extra sprinkles of shichimi togarashi along with mountain jasmine tea hit the spot. And ginger snaps for dessert. Keep warm!
