Cold As Ice
We had a small ice event this week. After trekking home in slushy weather on Monday, I was awoken at 4 am Tuesday by an ice storm warning alarm on my phone. The initial predictions were a little scary for those of us who remember Ice Storm ’94. But in the end, there was barely enough freezing rain to qualify for an ice storm warning. I’m not complaining – I don’t want power outages or a tree through my roof! I wouldn’t have minded being homebound for a day or two, though. The roads remained mostly fine, except for some black ice here and there.
It’s still really cold, so a lot of the ice is still around. I snapped these pictures yesterday evening while killing time before church.
You can sort of see the ice on the trees in the streetlight!
In other news: this is my new camera! My old Canon Powershot SD1200 was lost/stolen at a wedding I went to in October. I was happy with that camera, so I bought an exact duplicate for cheap on eBay. Unfortunately, it was a lemon (lesson learned about buying electronics on eBay). The focus didn’t work at all on zoomed shots, and only sporadically on wide shots. After perusing reviews, I bought this Canon Powershot SX260 with Christmas money and am loving it so far. Unfortunately, I haven’t had time to sew a case for it, so I’m carrying it around in the flimsy plastic wrap from the packaging. Classy!
