Delicious Weather.

Recently it 'iced' for a day and then snowed for a day on top of that. Icing with Frosting on top!

Mmmmm.

I grew up in Nevada. Then I moved to California. And then I moved out here to Oklahoma. We've been here for almost 5 years, and STILL this 'ice' nonsense baffles me. It's not hail, it's not sleet, it's not snow... it's ICE. They call it 'icing'.

But it's not like frosting on a cake.

Apparently, "ice" can be an adjective.

I took these pictures this afternoon... it's what is left of the snow on top of the ice. (Now picture that ice layer on all the roads!) (Hint: Cars become hockey pucks.) But, as you can see, the whole front of this fence is also covered in a thick layer of ice.




I don't understand this. It is a VERTICAL surface.

I don't feel smart enough to grasp how this is even possible.

Still, I love it, even though I'm not intelligent enough to understand it. Snow (and now ice!) is my mostest most most-er-ton FAVORITE weather ever.

What's yours?

I think intense weather like that is so much fun! Snow and ice still get me giddy like a little kid.

Humid and with a little sun (Just for the sake of taking pictures)but mostly over cast. This is my favorite. Tropical weather that is overcast!

heh, I could pretty much say snow and ice are my least favorite types of weather. I actually love cloudy and rainy the most!

Ack! I am scheduled to fly to OKC on Sunday night for a work trip! How bad are the roads? Hopefully it will be clear by then...

I'm so glad you love the ice and the snow because most people don't, but it's BEAUTIFUL! Sure, going outside in it isn't all that fun, but I love the look of frost and icicles. They glitter. It's magical. And cold. But mostly magical!
