I know, I know - you live in Canada or you read the Yarn Harlot's blog so 8 degrees (Farenheit I might add) is nothing. Well, I live in the south for a reason - it's warmer here! We don't have to ever shovel snow. When is does snow, the whole state shuts down and we all stay home (unless of course you are a nurse). I have never owned a snow shovel, snow shoes, a sled or any other such wintery device and I certainly don't intend to start now!
There was ice on our pond Saturday AM. Here are some pictures for ya.
I don't know if you can tell or not but all of the lighter part of the pond is a sheet of ice. Only the darker portion in the very back of the pond here does not have ice on it.
Here's where the inflow for the pond is.
And this is the grass on the dam.
I can't really complain though (even though I am) because our house stayed toasty warm with the wood stove and the kiln going. We have SO MUCH to be thankful for so I guess a little bit of cold air every now and then can be tolerated! :)
