Today's Flowers: Ice Flowers

None of the shots in this post are actual flowers but I thought the ice turned the whole world into a flower.
I took all of these shots on Thursday when we went from snow to freezing rain.
It got above freezing on Friday and I wasn't sorry to see it melt because of the risk of power outages.
I'll never forget a winter when we had an ice storm followed by a snow storm and much of the city including my house lost power.
I know a lot of people, including a neighbor, who got generators after dealing with that storm.
I don't have a generator so I'm always a tad nervous when we have an ice storm.

These shots are amazing! It´s really beautiful with the ice. I have never experienced an ice storm...only read about it. Must be terrifying! Hope the weather gets better!
Take care & stay warm!

That looks really chilly! I imagine my flowers freezing in the cold!

I hope the weather will not get too cold for comfort. Cuddle up and stay warm inside.
