Tractor tire with ice

Icy Tractor Wheel

My beautiful ice is now covered with snow.  It’s really pretty, but YIPES!, it is slippery!  I shoveled thinking I was doing a good thing.  Now, we have ice covered with a very thin layer of snow on our walkway and driveway.  Maybe not such a good idea.

Sparkly Snow

I took the above photo during the day with a poor choice of settings.  I like it!

    Hi donna!

    Thank you! The pattern of the ice was so amazing!

    I was wondering the same thing about the tire. I’ve never seen a prettier one! :-) It’s neat when you catch simple things in a certain light and get to see their beauty!

    Thanks for stopping by earlier. I noticed you have a son that plays guitar. My 14 year old has a guitar in his hand for hours every day!

    Hi Kim!

    The same with my son! When he gets home from school, he heads right for his guitar, for some relaxation and fun before homework!

    Whoa, that ice is crazy. I can’t imagine that kind of weather… maybe ’cause it’s 80+ degrees here right now. I kinda wish Winter would make an appearance.

    Hi ELK!
    Yes, and I think it’s going to stay white. It’s way too cold for it to melt!

    Hi Stephanie!
    Ahh, California is so beautiful and warm! I’m sitting in my house with a thermal shirt, sweater, jeans and two layers of socks on (the heat is on, of course) and I think I need another layer of clothing!
