Slide show from our icy holiday




I hope you enjoy the photos. It took a while to upload them! I've taken a slew of winter wonderland pictures. It really is incredible for those of us living in tropical climates - its like hell froze over! We have enjoyed being "iced in" altogether for the past few days, although Anna misses her school and is glad to be returning tomorrow. It snowed for a while Tuesday morning, then rained in the subfreezing temperatures, creating an amazing glaze over everything. The solar panels managed to make some electricity through the ice. Anthony chipped inches off the cars so that we can drive to work and school tomorrow. Its been fun to play outside in the cold, come in and drink hot chocolate and coffee, and hang out together.

Woah, in the mist of the henhouse I thought I saw ......'one hen, two ducks and three squawking geese'

What a terrific slide show.

I loved the slide show. You will have to show me how to do that.

WOW! Aren't you the 'net savvy sister? I laughed outloud when Colin was eating iced arugula. Then the Our House picture got me singing that 80s hit in my head (Hall n Oats?) How fun.
We had no school even though I saw NO ice here. Oh well, we saw Charlotte's Web and enjoyed the day anyway.

Wow! Looks like a hauntingly familiar landscape. It never occurred to me to eat icicles. Guess I should listen to my inner child more.
