the ice cometh



the ice we got the night before last
put a sheet of sparkles over everything
it wasn't a great amount
just enough to
cover everything
....
and close the schools









then the sun peeked out just a tiny bit and it all started to
drip drip drip





the group in the background had just landed
with a great deal of noise
from them and the ones already on the lake
the noise of the splash down was incredible
there were quite a few more out of shot
 they seemed to be thrilled to be here
they knew something we didn't
a fog bank was coming
and it covered us in a blanket so thick
 it was spooky
all we needed to make it complete
was a fog horn
and
some zombies!!!

the two in the foreground
Honker and a friend
they were the welcoming committee
loud and proud
and nosey as all get out!!!!!


Today it is just grey and gloomy and wet
all the geese have gone
and Honker and a friend
are awaiting the next
gaggle of visitors

Those icy pictures are fantastic! I just can't imagine it being so cold. 50 is cold enough for me. We had a cloudy drizzly day today. It's been a long busy day and now it is time to go to bed. Knitting would really do me in. Just seems so much more complicated than crocheting. I did a bit of crazy quilting this evening. Will have to try and finish my square over the weekend. Goodnite! Tammy
