My blogging buddy, Cardinal Guzman  inspired me to do a little recycling — it’s good for the environment! 🙂 Also, the end of the year is drawing nigh, which always makes me a bit philosophical. At first, I was thinking I was going to make a gallery of twelve photos … one for each month, but I got so lost in my albums, browsing, so I’ll save that for another day.

The storm was devastating, people were without power for weeks in the rural areas, and it was cold! Ice storms are only good for photography! Today we drove by a thermometer that showed 44ºF, and not a snowflake in sight! When I got up on Christmas Day’s morning, it was 55ºF [13ºC], foggy and soggy.

    That photo looks like a wonderland. It is so beautiful!

    We try to recycle and reuse. I have grown up doing so and sometimes I get tired of the constant recycling. Our town isn’t equipped with the ability to help with it so we have to drive some distance to do so. Paper I reuse in my crafts and as starter for our little fires outside.

    We had a couple inches of snow today! It was beautiful but is starting to melt already.

      Here, I was going to recycle some photos, but I must have lost my train of thoughts, so only one was posted. When I arrived in Canada, I was almost brain washed about recycling. Back in Sweden, they’ve taken it to unimaginable levels. People have very little that goes in the garbage.

        We, here in North America, should follow the European example to reduce, reuse and recycle instead of simply being wasteful.

      Heh! 🙂 Thank you ..

      It was the strangest feeling that day … it was quiet, except for the crackling sound from the ice!

    I totally agree that “Ice storms are only good for photography”.
    Lovely photo Reb and I’m hoping to see a gallery later! Ha en fortsatt god jul!

    I had a poem and then I lost it. Perhaps that is for the best.
    Memories of last year and what was left behind.
    Thank you for preserving the beauty.

    You’re right about the value of ice storms. I’ve been through very few, and the ice usually melts fairly rapidly, but if the electricity goes off–then the ice seems to move inside.

    Photo. Is. Breathtaking.
    That ice storm was terribly disturbing wasn’t it??
    We are getting snow here today Mon., Dec. 29th finally….maybe there is hope for Winter yet, hahaha!

          One day, all the ducks were gone! I thought they’d smartened up and gone south, but the next day, they were all back! It was extremely cold that day, so perhaps they went into hiding or something…

      It was stupid … I imported another blog, and merged them. That’s why and I didn’t even think of that beforehand … that there would be pingbacks. Sorry 😳
