Snow & Sleet & Freezing Rain...Oh My!!

We've had an unusually cold "fall" this year.  We had a tiny bit of snow a couple of weeks ago & had a little more this morning, but our winter wonderland was quickly replaced by our more typical sleet & freezing rain.  Even though our previously confection-topped landscape now more closely resembles mud pie, I was able to capture some of the beauty still quiveringly clinging onto whatever it can.

Nature's tinsels dripping from a cedar tree.

Dogwood buds encapsulated in their frozen shell.

   Hopefully, the ice will soon succumb to the warming temps & no power lines will assaulted.  
No power + cold weather = no fun

I hope you're all safe & warm.

I came, I saw, I got caught up all the way through Thanksgiving. Loved your musings about your grandma, your willow tree, your Indian food. Thanks :)
