Skating


on thin ice ...

a thin sheet of ice blankets my world,
this is looking down my driveway
photos should be click-able to enlarge

 
sleet and ice look like diamonds on the deck


glare ice, not water, trapped in drops


hubby's burning pit appears as a skating rink
with logs near by, marshmallows anyone?


We have escaped the heavy deep snow our surrounding neighbors have been buried in. Hubby did have to plow down about 5 inches that fell on top of the ice shown above. Deep freeze temperatures linger in the forecast, and no sun. So no slip, sliding, sledding or skating in the near future for me. Indoors I stay.

Stay warm and watch you step !

  2. I'm in sandals today. It's warm for a change. I don't like winter and all the cold it brings. I need to live in the tropics. That would suit me just fine.

    Have a terrific day and stay warm. :)

  3. I hope you were careful out there. We had sleet and then 7 inches of snow on top. I think the ice is worse.

  5. I don't mind snow storms but freezing rain I hate. Looks like you have a very slippery go of it there.

  20. Winter scenes like these always look much more inviting in pictures than in real life. The railing ice is a nice shot.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Sorry the first linky was last week's.

    Our house is the same way! One of our gutters is starting to pull away from the weight. It wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't 5 inches thick.

  30. Hey Brian that looks exactly like one of cats, Briggs.

    We have had a bunch of snow here too over the past week. There is a lot more predicted for the next two days. I may get to go snowshoeing on Saturday. Hooray! And to think a couple of weeks ago we were worried about drought.

    Happy WW!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Nice shots. Hope it gets warmer for you soon. :-) We can barely handle a couple of days of rain here in Southern Cal. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Did you not have the warm weather that everyone else had this past weekend? Dig your way out of that mess and come on down to FL! It was 80 today!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Just think... spring's only three weeks away! Of course, for you and me, it could take a little longer...

    Gorgeous closeups of the ice and snow crystals!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I would be hibernating. Oh wait, I just about do.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh, Brrrrr... that is why I live in Florida! Don't like that at all, except for the marshmallows maybe. :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I would love some marshmallows thanks!

    That is really beautiful, and you got some great shots!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh my - it was 84 here yesterday.

  39. Whao..that's really lots of ice.. it's nearly March and there's still lots of snow where you live.
    Happy WW

  40. I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape - the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn't show.

    ReplyDelete
  41. That looks like fun for a little while, but not long term!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Scary!!!! Happy WW

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  55. We had a lot of snow then it went into the 50's and it all melted but the next day it was back to single digits so it froze and it has been cold ever since. At least it has been sunny which is slowly melting some of the ice!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Brrrrrrr....I'm cold just looking at those pictures!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Love your icy little stalactites . . .I wonder, should one call them icictites???

    ReplyDelete
  58. We had ice like that about a week ago, I didn't leave the house! lol.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Wow. We got tons of snow but thankfully, not much ice this year.

    ReplyDelete
  60. That's terrible. I hate snow but hate ice more. Be careful out there.

    ReplyDelete
  61. it looks like that here the other day and i watched someone spinning their tires trying to get up a steep drive way and some spots in the roads were HORRIBLE!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Winter weather isn't much fun, but it does make for some fantastic pics!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Those pictures are making me shiver! We still have about a foot of snow left on the ground and its crazy cold. I hate winter!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I've been wanting to hibernate longer too! This weather is starting to drive me nuts, last week we had a gorgeous 55 day then it was back to 10 and snow the next, AND I fell on my butt getting out of the truck, darn ice! I just keep chanting to myself, spring is on it's way, spring is on it's way :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. I can't wait for the warm weather to get here!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Oh I am so glad we are finally starting to warm up here in GA. We are just not use to all that snow and ice stuff, we've knocked a bit off kilter. :D

    Enjoy your hybernation for a little while longer.

    ReplyDelete

  71. Okay, fine, I'll stop complaining about the snow we got last week. You definitely have way more headache to deal with! Geez, living out this way has turned me into a wimp. LOL

    Great photos. I love the one of the frozen drops, especially. :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. Yes, do be careful.

  73. I wonder if we live close, seems we have the same weather forecast.

    I love your icy diamonds.

    ReplyDelete
  74. you always have the prettiest pictures!

    ReplyDelete
  75. This brings back memories of my last house in TN, especially the driveway shot. I can't tell if yours is steep but just the shot of the snow on it reminds me of how we used to get stuck at the bottom of the driveway. We would be trying to leave our house but if leaves fell on the pavement and then got wet, we were trapped. I don't miss being late for work because it rained on some leaves! Hope the ice turns into sunshine for you soon.

  81. Thanks for popping by . . .

    I'm still chuckling!
    My heron in WINTER PLUMAGE? Not on your Nelly! He's basking in the summer sun.Yup, while you have winter, we have the other thingy ya know? like when it is stinking hot and swimming in the shallows is like soaking in a nice warm tub and provides great enjoyment as well as cooling one down a little.

    Don't take it badly, no disrespect meant, just a bit of a tease.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Thank you for stopping by my friend. I hope all is well with you., and thanks for the sweet comment too! Love your pics! Thanks for sharing.

  83. Looks like a good time to stay indoors.
    I have been busily cleaning as well as clearing some snow so have not posted this week. Trying to be "responsible."

    ReplyDelete
  84. The snow and the ice...my California husband keeps thinking we've seen the end of winter here, and he's always so disappointed when we get more snow. It is only February! We could get snow until April!

    More in the forecast for the weekend too. I think we are going to make the best of it and put on our snowshoes and take our baby Jack for his first ride in his pull-behind sled.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Your pictures remind me of long ago during a cold, cold winter here at the shore. Silly people actually tried to drive their autos across the ice on the bay. The ice cracked and the vehicles went down. Beware of thin ice/
