Sky Watch: Snow and Ice


The snow came leaving between four and six inches.
Then ice to cover and make the snow glisten.
Branches heavy with snow and ice, yet beautiful!
Treacherous roads of ice and snow.
Downed trees meant ten hours without power.
A huge thanks to those who braved the elements!

Hi Carletta, Just dropping by for my weekly comment. Sure looks cold. I know being without power helps us appreciate how much we depend on it today. Great shots. Pappy

The ice storm was horrendous. But very pretty too.

bowledover said...

Indeed lovely pictures and I am sorry for your loss of power.
I still would like to walk the road with the bend, even with the snow and ice.Slipping and sliding I would think.

Oh beautiful winter scenes, I especially love the second to the last shot, that of the road. I enjoyed these shots, thanks.

The photo of that road is very nice!
But better be carefull.

Ida said...

Nice series from your snow covered landscape.
A little bit dramatic, though.

Leedra said...

Beautiful....guess your power is on again. There are so many that won't have for a couple of weeks.

Sylvia K said...

It is indeed amazing how absolutely gorgeous a storm like this can be -- if you don't have to get somewhere in a hurry or at all! Your photos are outstanding! Thanks for sharing! Hope you have a good weekend!

Neal said...

Beautiful but you can have it. :)

Hi Carla, beautiful snow pictures. Those power line guys deserve medals don't they? Thank you for your kind comments on my blog recently. They meant a lot to me.

Hi Carletta,
I love all of these. I'm especially drawn to the 3rd one. That lone tree is dazzling!

Shelly said...

Those roads do indeed look dangerous...but wow are they ever pretty!

quilly said...

That road looks dangerous, but oh so beautiful!

I am sitting here in Hawaii shivering! I have a lap blanket and a shawl on!

Kerri said...

It looks beautiful! Sorry you were without power for so long.

Rose said...

Oh, Carletta, you got some beautiful shots! Just beautiful.

Mary said...

Looks like my skies, but without the trecherous roads through mountains...thankfully! Stay safe and hope you have power back. Three cheers to all who work in this sort of weather! My in-laws have been without power for 2 days now.

Gattina said...

That's real snow skies !! and we will have this weather next week ! I hate snow !! Poor me I was born on the wrong side of the world !

Tink *~*~* said...

You guys must be really tired of "winter wonderland" and into the realm of "mommy, make it stop!" now. Love the George Winston tune that greeted me upon arrival!

Doo, doo, doo, lookin’ out my back door at the SKY!

Raven said...

It's so gorgeous! Too bad it brings so much misery and suffering with it. Glad you have power again. I heard there are more storms predicted for the south. I hope that they don't materialize and that everyone stays warm and safe.

esnorway said...

Good pic and winter is butiful. have nice SWF weekend

Mamapippa said...

I love the snow photos, great !

Robert V. Sobczak said...

You have to hand it to those road clearing crews. That's treacherous work. I'm sure they all have a hot thermos of coffee ready at hand!

Janice Thomson said...

Trees are as beautiful in winter as in summer. Nature has many ways of culling the weak ones - occasionally at our inconvenience :) A fabulous series of shots Carletta.

Tarolino said...

Lovely winter scenes. The last is my favourite. So nice to see men at work :)
Still you have captured the snow flurries so well in one of the shots too.

"Ice Pony Girl" said...

Pretty...even with the bad roads.

fishing guy said...

Carlaetta: We also got blasted but luckily didn't loose power. You got some neat shots.
