While I have the chance...

It is dark almost and the birds are still at the feeders; what is/was strange is that they hardly came yesterday. Usually they come the day before a storm hits. With them staying out there this late, it makes me wonder if really bad weather is coming.
We awoke to an icy world this morn...but it wasn't as bad as it could have been.
I eventually got dressed in warm clothes and ventured outside to take a few pictures. I love the one above...it is the 'smoke' on my smoke tree. Makes me think of a crystal chandelier.
I wonder what my dogwood will do when spring comes after this freeze.
I felt like I was risking life and limb getting out...everything is a sheet of ice. You better believe I was careful going down the steps...

The cable has blinked off and on a few times today...so far no more dimming of lights or anything since last night, but thought I would post these while I have the chance.
