The Ice Storm Cometh

28 January 09

The view from my easel window…view-from-easel


It’s not a very impressive storm…but given the lack of snow this year…which is my fault for buying a brand new snow blower two winters ago…it is notable.

If I could include an audio file it would be the sound of one long¬†giant CRUNCH… there is a thick layer of solid ice on top of this snow and Gully and I sound like we’re inside the auditory canals of someone eating grape nuts…without milk.

So what’s the view outside of your studio windows ?????


One thought on “The Ice Storm Cometh

  1. Heavy ice bending the treetops; an aborvitae looped over in a horseshoe shape, which I keep hitting with the broom hoping to knock off some ice to save it from breaking; Deep Hollow Road, not nearly as well plowed as Conewago Creek Road; dogprints everywhere, as my big dogs break right through the ice coating except for Nina who tippee-toes on top in an effort not to fall on her butt; and an abundance of birdseed scattered on the ice for the birds who are having difficulty getting through to their feeder trays. Would much prefer ten feet of snow.
