ice age 01-25-13

the weatherman in morristown is getting pretty good…they called it last week, they called it this week…but so did the robins i had in my front yard yesterday, eating fruits like crazy from my ornamental pear tree. they fortold the last storm, right along with the weatherman, wonder if they know each other?? smile

woke up to a gray world…the ground covered with a think glaze…my toyota covered with many icicles… as the day wore on, the fog would come and go, my trees behind my house would disappear in the brightness…when i sat for supper, watching the pear tree branches get thicker and the sway of the majestic pines, branches low to the ground. you could see the mist falling with the dark green pine needles behind it…was magical, quiet, cold, wonderful, enchanting…

the ice/fog/mist adding up as the day wore on…only 1 vehicle out and about all day long…that i heard or saw…was out on the front porch shooting pictures and heard a truck coming ’round the bend down below…salt truck…turned beside the office…that road is a county road…mine is not…reckon the property management doesn’t pay, as we get no salt…roads or sidewalks…i shot  a picture of the truck…but then again, ice is not something you can do a lot for.  the weather is warming up to 60 by monday, mother nature will tend to it…naturally…smile

snowflakes, snowflakes, snowflakes!

the first snow of the year is always exciting!  i had the honor of being out and about with robin and phoenix when the snow started coming down…after a few minutes in morristown, tn, the snow was adding up in a hurry! about 4″ and still coming down! the flakes big and soft and beautiful as dogwood petals…the toyota did GREAT in “granny gear” pulling hills that trucks and cars were stalled on the sides of the road…we tooled right along…took hours to go just a few miles…but we made it! had the most fun trying to climb the last of my hill here…stalled and slid…back it up, in granny gear and give it hell! all the way to the floor! it was spinning for a minute, then grabbed hold and climbed on up! we were all yelling and screaming and enjoying ourselves immensely. they are back in their van and headed home…the snow plow cleared their way…all is well in this winter wonderland…thank you Creator for such a lovely day……….SMILE

in the year 20-13

if man is still alive….what was the song, in the year 2525…for now, we’re still here… barely…but hope is brewing across this world.

hope that we can all be brothers and sisters and again, take back to tending mother earth, we are Idle No More.

january in east tn has been wet, foggy, cloudy and rain, rain and more rain.

the trees are so very happy, we have had freaky 70 degree weather…my hyacinth bulbs are coming up!

i see big blobs of blue snowstorm on the radar, but here on my hill, the temperature is hovering just warm enough for rain.

if these many inches of water were snowflakes…i’d be up to my eyeballs in snow…so i enjoy snow in pictures from friends.

the northwest is beautiful, white and bitter cold…the southeast is warm, wet, rivers reaching flood stage…in january…
