Tuesday morning of this week, my wife and I, from our front porch, were privileged to look out across ice covered hills into a clear sky commanded by a riveting sun. I thought you might enjoy this beautiful remnant of an ice storm that covered much of the middle of the NA continent. Countless homes are, no doubt, still without power in ice ravaged towns across the southern plains, but we enjoyed our two to three hours of candle light which reminded us how great and convenient electricity truly is. Winter heaps inconvenience on us sometimes, but the cold, clear days of January, after one has acclimated to winter, are really enjoyable. Now for a really good snow and some sledding on our hill. Come enjoy it with us!
