In addition to the massive snowfall, the gusty winds and the freezing cold, the house has developed icicles! These are the biggest ones I’ve ever seen! What a winsome winter we’re having here! Thanks Mother Nature!
In the photos, you probably can’t see that there are some which are even taller than me (because they end behind the banister on the stairway), but I think they are beautiful. When the sun was shining on them and they were glistening, they were magnificent. Unfortunately the photos I took don’t do them justice.
The temperatures with wind chills factored in are reaching – 5 to – 20 which is mighty cold for Jersey. But we are cozy in the house, so that’s all that counts. We had some snow drifts that were about 3 feet high in places, so they weren’t shoveled. But the driveway is clear, thanks to a few snowblowers and some back breaking shoveling. Thank God, all is well.
How are you doing in your area? Snow? Cold? Windy? Sunny? Warm? I hope that whatever your weather, you are nestled all snug in your home like our kitty Tigger. As always, I wish you a lovely Saturday, filled with blessings, goodness and with a heartlight that shines brilliantly!
What a nice photo of the dear little Tigger nestled beneath the tree.
Thanks Anne! It’s her favorite spot!
Brrrr! Bodacious ice cycyles, cute kitty! 🙂
Thanks Michael! 🙂 Happy Caturday!
Icecycles like that were common on most homes when we spent that year in Michigan. While we were just on the edge of the snow line in SC, it has been ridiculously cold, but we are promised temps near 70 by midweek.
Lucky you Ray! 70 by midweek! I’m jealous!!!
Well, that’s the forecast, but we will see what really happens 🤔
Fingers crossed for you! 🙂
Wow these are amazing. Stay safe and warm 🙋🏼♀️💕
Thanks! You too! ♥ Happy to see you! Hope all is well with you!
Wow, these icicles. I guess they are safety hazard too once they start melting.
I broke the ones I could so that there would be less danger. They were really thick though and it took a bunch of hits for them to break!
Oh Wow.I would just stop getting out of the house.Brrrrr
It’s wonderful here honestly. So pretty! I am cozy and warm at home watching the world go by!
That’s the best part of winter season. Cozy and warm cuddled with the loved ones and a warm cup warming your fingers.
Oh yes indeed! You are so right! I hope you have a lovely Sunday!
BRRR! I hope you’re able to stay snug and warm! I enjoyed the phots and your text.
Hi Russ! We are snug and warm here! Snug as a bug in a rug as my southern mama says! LOL
It’s amazing to see Mother Nature creating some incredible sights like your huge icicles. And coming from a place where they are predicting 40C for us today 😀
Lovely Mark! Enjoy your weather! Yes, Mother Nature certainly gives us gifts that we can admire when we take the time to look! 🙂
It’s supposed to rain here – skies are all gray right now. Yesterday was lovely out – just enjoy while we can right?! Those are some epic icicles you have growing there! Stay warm! Hugs!
Enjoy the rain which feeds the spring flowers! We are all cozy warm here, thanks! Have a lovely day relaxing! Hugs to you!!
🙂 Hugs back your way – we have warm sunshine I’m about to get out in today!
Yippee! I will have to stop by to see your beautiful artistry come to life!
The world is surely showing us extremities… in Australia they are experiencing 49 C! Here in Spain we are experiencing 22C with very strong sunlight in the day and about 10C in the night. We’re never sure what to wear! so glad we chose to live in the warmer climate though. Your icicles send me a chill down my spine… but I also see the beauty in all. Happy new year Misifusa x love barbara
Happy New Year Barbara! Feliz Ano Nuevo! Enjoy sunny Spain! I love that we can see the beauty in all the cold icicles and warm sunshine! Big hugs to you! xo
