Well, Ice-Pocalypse 2011 has arrived.  The kids were off of school today and it has already been called off again for tomorrow.  It’s cold.  Freezing cold.  In fact, tomorrow night they are calling for below zero temps – *shivers*.  Here’s hoping the electricity stays on.  If not, we’re heading for Dad’s house and his fireplace.  Pop, I know you read this, so don’t be changing the locks on us!

I hear ya about the electricity. Ours has blipped off a few times, but thankfully came back on in a few minutes. One blip happened just as I finished an hour long new blog post for Grit magazine, just as I was saving it... alas, too late. I almost beat my head against the wall, lol. Had to start allllll over.

Love your b&w pic, it's beautiful. Stay warm, stay safe, and enjoy the snow days with each other! :)

What a great shot - perfect in black and white!
It's snowing and blowing here too - 15-18 inches predicted, but I think your ice is probably worse!
