Last weekend, the freezing rain went long into the night coating everything in a brilliant blanket of ice. It was a beautiful (and slick!) world we awoke to on Sunday morning! The temperature was quite cold, and the sun refused all day to peek through the thick gray cover of clouds. Judging by the forecast, the 3/8" or so of ice we had received was going to be here for awhile, so I refrained from going on a 'photography walk' until the cheery sunshine returned.
Monday morning that time had come! The sun broke through and lit everything up . . . and photos could not fully capture the incredible brilliance. It was so bright with the sun reflecting off of all of the ice that at times it hurt the eyes! Yet it was so beautiful as well . . .
It was slick walking on grass like this! Though easier on the grass than in the areas where the ground was bare. :)
The ice stayed well into the week until warmer tempertaures arrived. With that and sunshine, things began melting so quickly, and it looked like it was raining outside! And sounded like it, too. We enjoyed the beauty while it lasted, though we were all grateful to welcome the warmer weather and sunshine that we've had since then!
