Ice Day II: The Sequel

Day Two of being cooped-up in the house all day because we can't even venture out the door. Thank God for satellite TV and the internet... heck, thank God for ELECTRICITY. We haven't lost power at all in this mess. That is a major blessing. One major ice/snow storm in Iowa that I remember happened in October when there were still leaves on all the trees, and it downed power lines everywhere for days and days. Yecch.
Still, there is exquisite beauty to be seen in this phenomenon:

I am grateful for the sun, because it means that eventually this afternoon all this will melt away and we'll be able to move around again... and especially because it causes every tree branch and blade of grass to appear in brilliant, blingy relief against the cyan sky.
