Ice Flowers

It has snowed here more already this season than probably the last two winters combined! In fact the kids have another day off from school today due to another storm. When it snows so much you start to notice how each snow fall is different. When it is really cold the flakes can be really small. This snow is generally lighter and easier to shovel but not great for sledding. Sometimes when the temperature hovers right around freezing you get big corn flake size snow flakes. This type of snow is heavy but much better for sledding. The last storm (the one before today’s) was icy. Alternating snow and rain makes driving especially dangerous but also happens to coat the trees in beautiful blobs of ice. On my drive to pick up the kids from school I noticed these blobs where sparking with sunset colors. It was like driving down streets lined with gems. I could almost hear the twinkles!

    • The icy stuff was when we gave up shoveling! But now with yet another storm in the forecast we are regretting that!
