Well, guess winter's not over. Not that I expected it to be since it's only Feb. We won't see our front lawn again until April at this rate. Haven't seen it since after the ice storm in December. And, our driveway is still a sheet of 2" thick ice. Never gets warm long enough to melt or chip it away. I've managed to I think tear my tendons in my arms from trying. Was trying to hold my camera with the Tamron 70-300 lens on this morning and had to get the tripod out. I can't hold it steady.

Anyway, we had snowWed. night and thought that was it. But, night before last when I left my volunteer job I was faced with a ride home in a blinding snow. The Star Wars kind where it's coming at you. As I got closer to home I was in white out conditions and hesitant to pull out onto roads because I couldn't see either way. Made it home safely. These are photos of my trip to work the next day once I got out of the deeper, less cleared roads as I was driving while taking some of these. So, repitition of winter, snow and icicles which I've had about enough of. It's pretty, but it's the cold weather that goes along with these shots that's killing me.

#3 Once I got to work. The icicles are forming again. So much for our roof heating system installed last year.

#4 The blue skies are deceiving. It was 19ยบ out at this point and didn't make it much warmer yesterday.

When we moved here just over 20 years ago, I never understood why people went south for the winter. As I get older, I understand now.

Thanks for the comments.

Patty

Hi Patty

Great Shots!!

I Completely understand the last Comment you made!!! Kinda the way i am getting To feel!!
We have been very fortunate here in Ct. The temps have been in the Upper 30 to Mid 40 Range the last few weeks so all our Snow is gone. We have had a few inchs here and there, but it mainly turns to rain.

Hang in there Spring is just a few weeks away
