Snow…? NO, Wait – ICE Day…

A good old fashioned ICE Storm ⛈ is what we woke to this morning! Not as bad as predicted, thank the Lord! We’ve had to endure weeks with no heat before from bad ones and let me tell you, it’s not fun! But the stone walks all are slick with ice and impassable, So is my driveway! Therefore, we were forced to close today… So, we got that goin for us 😊!

A day off in the Winter can be a fun day! Especially with a pretty snow ⛄️ BUT, Ice just shuts you down…

Snow days are always fun days! Snowballs, snowmen, sledding, 4 wheeling, snow cream, ahhhhh the good old Snow Daze!!! But an Ice Day? What do you do for fun on an Ice Day? In my humble opinion, Ice Days are the crappiest of all days off due to weather…

BUT, there are some beautiful views and pictures to be had…

A little damage, but not too bad.

I just thought of the perfect Ice Day activity…. A Big, Fat, NAP! 😴 💤

Y’all have fun 😊

ICE STORM –

“Icy rain comes with a crinkling sound 
Like little silver coins falling on grounds 
Tree limbs covered with translucent ice 
Channels of pure white gleaming calm. 

In icy storm proud oak to earth stumbles 
Aromatic bushes are much more humble 
Intact is the grace of their ice laden veins 
Bowing in reverence for mighty Rummager. 

In opaque sunlight plump scarlet berries 
And metallic ice enhanced the olive curves 
Of bent bushes like crimson cheeks and skin 
Luminous adorn a maiden’s clandestine arc.

Power outage, phone and Internet gone 
Forget about connecting to world for fun 
Ponder upon slavery of new convenience 
And think of sustaining with bare essentials. 

but who would remember the deadly storm 
In morning light the heart merrily romps 
Transient is the wondrous beauty of icicles 
Pain and glee of nature such as don’t last.”
