Thursday night and Friday morning we had a pretty good storm here in New England. Parts of New Hampshire and Vermont were declared states of emergency and many people lost their power. Ice will do that to power lines. Much of the southern part of the states were coated in ice, being in a higher elevation, we in the north got more snow than rain so we fared a bit better...although our roads are still atrocious.
I spent much of the day on Friday cleaning out the driveway and cleaning my house for the weekly get together we have here with friends, so I didn't get to get out with my camera, but on Saturday when Mike came home from the store and said "Grab yourself a travel mug and get get dressed, you need to take your camera and go take some pictures...the way the sun is hitting the ice encrusted trees it looks like a sparkling world of crystal".
So half awake I stumbled into the car and drove very carefully down toward the lake and before my right pinky finger fell off from frostbite, I captured these:
Ice...its nasty to drive in..but it can be so beautiful. I'm so glad my husband kicked me out of the house :-)
