Ice, Ice Everywhere

icecubesThere seems to be ice everywhere outside.   On the trees, the streets, and the power lines.

If only it were the ice like in this picture — for a cold drink!

And now the state of Tennessee has declared a state of emergency.  This apparently is so they can start responding right away.

The storm has been named too.  It is called Winter Storm Khan.  Since when did they start naming storms like this?  They didn’t used to.

Thankfully schools have closed as well as many businesses, and people are staying home.  That is a good thing! I just hope and pray that the power will stay on.

A friend of mine mentioned on Facebook this morning that it’s too bad we can’t make ice cream out of the ice like we can make snow cream from the snow.  Too bad indeed.

Another friend of mine who writes the blog, “Postcards from the Ridge” (listed in my Blogroll) posted some great pictures taken in her yard this morning of this ice storm.

I may venture out and take some images.  But since I have a new camera, I won’t be going very far.  I don’t want to fall and hurt myself or break the camera!

For now, I am off to enjoy some chili for lunch and Ian has asked for chicken noodle soup.

To my friends and family, stay safe, stay home, and stay warm!!  Hopefully the temperatures will rise before the trees fall!!!!
