Ice storm.

Like much of the United States this weekend, we’ve been batting winter weather. It’s not as bad here as it is elsewhere, but it’s enough to keep us indoors and on each other’s nerves. I’ve got the kids doing yoga videos as much as I can until this ice melts enough for us to venture out and see what we can see.

The sun did come out, quite briefly, early this afternoon, only long enough for me to step outside alone with my camera for a few minutes. I snapped pictures until the cold wind drove me back indoors to where pre-Christmas chores awaited.

It’s dark and freezing now, and the kids are finally asleep, and now I’m sitting here looking at these pictures, and reliving that crisp, momentary dazzle from earlier today, and I find it’s better than the brightest, cheeriest Christmas lights.

Right now, sleet is rattling against the windows in my study. It reminds me of what it sounded like outside this afternoon, when the world was melting a bit and pitter-pattering down onto the ice-coated grass.

I don’t know when we’ll be able to get outside again, and I don’t know how many trees we’ll lose in this mess, but I’m still glad of a little ice storm now and then.

Call me crazy.

    Those pictures are so perfect. They are amazingly beautiful.

    But I don’t envy the cold. Yikes!
