World Outside Our Window
Actually, you can't see the world outside our window. The entire outside of the house, windows, and everything else, is covered with ice. The area around here has accumulated up to a half inch of solid ice. We went from 81-degrees yesterday, to 31-degrees this morning. The power went out about 3 a.m., but crews had it back on by the time we got up. How the wild birds survive, I have no idea. When they came onto the patio looking for the feed that had been put out, their tail feathers were solidly caked with ice and being dragged on the ground. The good news is that we haven't seen the tornadoes that were predicted for here.
