Icy Day for Solstice

Yesterday morning is was warm and the moon stayed with us late into the morning, making for a long dark day readying for the Solstice.

It is beautiful standing inside looking out today, seeing ice trees, ice shrubs, ice formations off roofs. It is cold and continues to rain so who know if this will end well today. The electricity has flickered on and off for hours, but we are lucky as it comes back on while in other places residents are without power.

And so on this Winter Solstice, Mother Nature is saying:
Let winter begin!!!!

It looks gorgeous, but dangerous as can be for an old gal like me.
We dodged the bullet, just rain. 70 degrees one day and 34 the next. Good old MO.

The ice is beautiful, but it does put a damper on any outings... I'm glad we've missed it here! Stay safe and Merry Christmas!

Yes, we've been fortunate--no ice, only rain, and since we don't have school for a while, I don't want ice. At least, not until school starts back up. ;)

Lovely photos, and your description of ice trees is perfect!
