We had an ice storm last night. It started late Monday, but really hit last night. At about 2:30 in the morning, I could hear it as it fell, and I awoke this morning to see all surfaces beautifully rimed with ice. I grabbed my digital camera and got these shots, but taking them reminded me that I really do need a tripod and that this year I'm buying myself a digital SLR.

Oh, those poor little blooms! I'm so flower starved here and to see those delicate little blooms encased in ice just hurts my heart!! lol

We got a foot of snow yesterday and then we got an inch and a half of ice to seal it in. Needless to say we had no power for 10 hours today. I'm sooooo hungry for Spring!

How's the babe?

Being in a tropical country, any photos on winter really amazed me.
