Friday- Freezing Frenzy, But Fantastic Foto's

Well I was going to blog about some stuff I got in the mail today. But I couldn't let the Freezing status of New York go un-mentioned today. So instead... here are some photo's of the first winter storm.

This is a hedge we have in our front yard. It might be a little hard to see but there is more then 1/2" of ice covering those leaves and branches. Then it started snowing and the snow stuck to the ice, making for a beautiful effect. It's my second favorite picture I took today.
This is one of the Pine trees my husband planted along the side of our driveway. The weight of the ice bent one whole side of this tree right to the ground.
Actually after a closer look it appears these branches have broken right off and are not just bent down. Luckily for us the trees didn't fall into the house. Many many other New Yorkers were not so fortunate.
This is a view down the driveway looking at the garage. This is our Peach tree... in the summer when it's in full bloom and full of peaches it bends over the driveway even worse then this. So much so that when I back the car out of the garage if the window is open I'll get a few peaches in my lap as I drive by.
This is the tree right in front of my sisters house next door. Can you see the icy roadway in the background. It was pretty slippery out there.
And the last picture is my favorite... I just love the way the branches are reaching into the heavens, almost as if they were worshiping God Himself. Oh wait they are.
Isa 55:12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap [their] hands.

Until tomorrow... Sweet Dreams

I love winter pics so much and yours are gorgeous. We haven't had snow here yet but once it begins, I'm sure we'll have our fill. :D

The ice storm here lasted long enough to close schools - then it warmed up in the 50s and melted away everything. What crazy weather!
The pictures are beautiful!

Your pictures are beautiful!! I love winter pictures like this. We were supposed to get this ice--only got a little and then turned to rain--buckets of rain for days!!

Love your CHRISTmas look and the snow falling!!

I watched mine one time--if you leave your blog open for a little- there will be more snow--not so much that you can't see--but more!!

Have a wonderful day!!

Wow, looks like you got a doozy! All the snow missed us again, though it's been cold here. Way below normal. We did get some rain! a few days ago that melted off what little snow we had. Then it froze. Gotta love the winter weather!

The photos are beautiful, but I wouldn't want to be in the middle of a snow storm. Happy to hear that none of the trees fell on your house.
