THE ICY HAND OF WINTER

Ol' Man Winter brought us freezing rain
and cold, cold weather to the Midwest.

Like a fresh coat of ice paint on every part of nature,
and a dangerous reminder that
we don't always get to go where we want, when we want.

There is a beauty in it all.
Every tree becomes an crystal chandelier.

(Just be careful where you walk.)

  2. Thank you so much.

    Wonderful pictures.

    The winter in Germany is gone and it's a real pity. Sledge riding in the park where I live was fantastic. Now its rainy, windy...

    The fourth photo is marvellous!

  5. Can we just change places? Just for a couple of days??

    I'm dying here! Figure out the situation: windows closed, air acondicionar on, cold milkshake on my left.
    Mr. Welcome to Argentina in February!

  6. Bonitas fotos. Ya había pasado antes por tu blog, pero no te dejaba un comentario porque no sé nada de inglés. Espero que me entiendas algo.
    Un abrazo.
