H2O

Seems like we are all running a little bit behind this month. That's okay. We will do better next month when thing have calm down a little(pssshhh...who am I kidding?)

Water, that's interesting. The only water that we have is in the house. Thank the Lord we have heat. But if I remember right, even when the electric goes off we still have hot water...because we have a gas hot water heater. Do you know which kind you have?

So back to water.Our trees have been coated with this frozen water for almost a week. Early in the mornings it is so peaceful, I think sometimes I can hear fairy wings...the snow has diamonds sprinkled in it and the trees shiver in the cold.We call these windowcicles. I found these out our bedroom window this morning when I was looking for the a yellow tailed flicker.
We have been checking each morning to see if they have grown over night. Looking out my window during the different seasons is something I look forward to each morning.

Icicles are so magical, aren't they? Crystaline and filled with reflections and light, growing like living things. Beautiful photos you have here!
