winter storm

Ice, Ice Baby

We are in the middle of our 2nd winter storm of the season, which is a rarity around these parts.

We didn’t get much snow where I live this time around, but we are getting a lot of ice so I decided to break out my camera and snap a few pictures.

Of course, ice on the roads is extremely dangerous.  But from this perspective, it doesn’t seem so bad, does it?

These shots reminded me that even in situations that are not ideal, you can still find something beautiful if you just take the time to look.

Have you ever let yourself find the good in a not-so-great situation? If so, please share!

Snow Day!

So a rare occurance for Wilmington has happened: we got snow! Well, actually, it’s just ice… snice… 

Either way, the roads are really bad out here.  We have TWO snowplows in the entire county, that’s how rare snow/ice/snice is for us.  So we got a snow day!

We ventured out earlier this morning to check out the snice.  Linux was a little freaked out but then he bumped into his friend Norman and they had fun playing together.

Because we rarely have snow, kids around here don’t have sleds, so they were having to get creative.  It was very entertaining to watch them use boxes, surfboards, etc. to try to sled down the hill.

This is a picture from the last snow we had about 3 years ago.  We had just adopted Linux just a month or two before this.

And this is him today.  He’s definitely grown a lot since then.

We came back in and I did some cleaning around the house.  Now I am cuddled up on the couch watching When Harry Met Sally and trying to figure out what I am going to do for dinner.  Suggestions welcome. 🙂
