I will not be sorry to see spring arrive early this year. While I did not provide amusement to the neighborhood this morning by ending up on my ass at the bottom of my driveway, it was a very close call.
Not only was my sidewalk, driveway, and car covered with a practically impenetrable coat of ice, the trees in my backyard were also frozen solid.
It was disturbingly beautiful in that eerie way ice before complete sunrise over snow that refuses to melt can be.
By the time I got my car un-iced and made it to work, the sun had risen but the cloud cover had become even denser with the freezing rain, turning everything into dull grey instead of the bluish tint from earlier.
The tree branches were still spectacular though.
I cannot wait till spring.
I don’t want to see any more of this.
