We woke this morning to -4F. Snow still on the ground. Faucets dripping water to keep the lines from freezing (catching it in buckets for later use). Icicles along the roof line. The big flakes in our Admiral FitzRoy's storm glass indicating we might get more snow.
They say it hasn't been this cold in these hills for a very long while. Most people aren't liking it. I have to admit, we do...I know, kind of crazy...taking turns waking up throughout the night to stoke the wood stove, bundling up to go to the basement and check the pipes, sleeping with the covers over my head to stay warm...relishing these moments that we may never experience again.
The past two days have been so cold I haven't walked to the mailbox and Johny's taken Bear...
On my walk to see my friend Bertie today, I saw these cool ice spikes on our tiny frog pond in the woods...
Life is good, sub freezing cold included!
Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
Love the frost pictures, and also that neat blue one in the next post where you can see the snowflakes!
I love the ice spikes in the pond!
And I thought it was cold here at 55 degrees...brrrrr!Hugs!
I love your photos, Lise. You remind me of Barry and me when we first moved to the mountains from south Georgia. We couldn't get enough of the snow.
It is beautiful and I do admire you for being wood stove people. I couldn't go that far, even back then.
But you are young and strong and that is enough.
I agree Marie, nature never ceases to amaze!
I thought they were pretty cool too Vicki...never saw them before.
I'm sure you have your woolies on dad! Try to stay warm. Hugs back:)
Thanks Glenda, we do enjoy the wood stove, including the work it takes to keep it stoked.
