Slippin' & Slidin'

Whew! Thank goodness this ice storm wasn't as devastating as predicted. We didn't end up getting a generator (they were $1000 and up, with an "all sales final" policy), but the power hasn't had any issues. I am so thankful for the good luck.
Even though the ice can be scary, it is hard to deny how pretty it looks on the tree branches. Especially when the sun is out, it glistens like perfect crystal.

I was surprised to see this foot-long icicle jutting out of the middle of the driveway, all by itself. Then I realized that it must have been attached to the car before it was moved, and just decided to hang out a bit before the sun finally melted its feet out from under it ☺

I hope everyone is having good luck in preparing for the upcoming busy week ahead. I have been putting the hammer down today, finishing up some handmade gifts... one less thing to have to worry about! I will post some pics on Monday to share with you all.

Have a great weekend!

Ice on branches is just beautiful. I love the LOOK of an ice storm, but never the devestation of losing power or having to go out and drive after one. ;) Glad it wasn't as bad as predicted. Ours wasn't bad at all, but I shouldn't tempt fate to send us another one. *knocks on wood* Happy Holidays!!
