ICE.....ICE.....BABY









Yes, Blurry just getting the picture of the grass not of Beans. Beans was moving across the grass gingerly.

Mr. Squirrel ran in front of the camera while taking a picture of the tree.

And it’s just beginning!  Today is supposed to be worse.

    Stay warm girl. It looks just like your pictures here too. My dang camera is on the fritz but I'm going to try getting some pics too. I'm thinking some hot chocolate is sounding pretty good right now!
    Merry Christmas to you, BDM and Tank!
    Love and Hugs,

  6. It is in the upper 70s here today and tomorrow we will have a record high. The weather across this country is so wonky.
    I did see on the news that the entire state of OK was actually shut down due to the ice. Is that true?
    I hope you guys thaw out, without any major incidents. Stay warm.

    1. JUGM,

      Oh how I miss 70 degree weather :P

      Yes, the entire state of OK was shut down. Were suppose to get more ice and snow tonight.

      We should thaw a little, then come Christmas day.....more snow.
      A good chuck of our area was without any power. We were lucky and prepared :-)

    1. DoubleBhomestead,

      We stayed home today. We did dress warm and go outside on the property to remove dangerous ice hanging from the roof of the house. And remove tree limbs from areas where it could be dangerous. You be careful too, with all that rain there could be flooding.

  9. oh my goodness Sandy - that is my favourite song from the 90's - bahahahahah!

    1. Sweet Kymber,

      Ice Ice Baby.......I used to love that song too. OMG, this ages both of us, lol.

      I would love to hear you sing Ice Ice Baby in french :-)

      The ice is beautiful but dangerous. We removed several trees months ago, those we thought were problems. Well the trees we thought were okay, are now in a compromised situation. We will need to cut and destroy others.

      All women love diamonds :-) The ice glistens and it all looks like diamonds. Can you imagine how rich one would be if this ice was real diamonds?

  10. My family lives in Oklahoma and I'm very familiar with those ice storms. I even have been caught in some when visiting for the holidays. You did a great job capturing what Oklahoman's have to live with and why you need to be prepared for power outages. Thanks for the pictures!

      Your family is in Oklahoma, what part?

      Oklahoma is full of weather type surprises. All I can say is hold on, the weather is always changing here :-)

  11. The ice is so beautiful, too bad it's also so dangerous!
    I've been thinking of you, Sandy.

    1. Kimberly,

      Ice is always beautiful, as long as you don't have to be out in it.
      We are safe, warm, and relaxing this weekend. Thank you for your blessings.
      Sending hugs to you and your husband.

    1. Harry,

      Yes it has been getting a lot of ice. If it warms up, I think there will be trouble with this ice falling and hurting people.

  14. Sandy,
    Parents when alive, now the oldest sister and oldest brother live in OK City. Younger sister when alive lived in Newkirk right on the boarder overlooking miles of grazing land in a beautiful 'A' frame house.

    1. Mike,

      The big "O" wasn't as bad as down south of the city with ice.
      Newkirk, I'm not familiar with this area. Living in a "A" frame house overlooking miles of grazing land sounds wonderful to me.
