It is a miserable, dangerously icy day.
It is also eeriely beautiful.

This is the first 'snow day' of our long winter season~ as our life goes, I got Rowan up and ready for school without ever looking outside. We were running late and she has been sick for days, so we pushed to get out the door... only to go sliding across the porch.

Well, we had made it that far, so we pushed on.

While today lacks the stunning beauty of a snowy January morning, bright with sunshine and ice coating the trees, it does hold a quiet beauty, accumulating as the sleet and freezing rain continue to fall.  I snagged the camera and snapped a few pictures of our front garden... the one I should have sheared off, but I always enjoy the interest of the black-eyed Susan and Yarrow heads in winter.

The ice transformed these dull, dead remainders into jewel toned beauties...
 Look at all that ice!
The hardy geranium frozen in its fall hues...
The yarrow I thought was just a drab brown...
And even the grass is transformed!
The forecast is calling for freezing rain turning to accumulated snow overnight.
The time has come to make sure the generator is gassed up and to settle in to a little bit of winter ♥♥
