ICE ICE BABY*

The winter storm that dumped upon my family in Iowa several inches of snow graced Indianapolis with a layer of ice. The weather rolled in yesterday evening, as I was finishing my late shift. The legislators, thankfully, chose to end the night without pushing additional motions. Thus, I left the office at 7:15, rather than 10:00 or 11:00. Sleet pelted my car as I coasted it two miles north, to my apartment. Streets were already slick, sidewalks coated. The all-night unfortunate weather resulted in a happy circumstance, however; I didn't have to be in the office until 11:00 this morning. After I learned of my late start, I texted a friend the good news.

"Drink up me hearties, yo ho!" was the reply.

I obliged, and so--after a glass of white wine and a round of Mario Party on the tried and true N64--I nestled into bed.

Making way into my car was remarkably easy; the door hinges were forgiving, not frozen. Scraping off the marbled ice, though, was altogether another task. A pretty one, though.







Remember the days when it wasn't necessary to "name" a winter storm?

* I will now have that terrible song stuck in my head for the rest of the evening.

  2. That ice storm was insane. My Jason didn't know if he would be able to get into his car or get his car to start so he could come home. Your photos are beautiful. I am so glad to have been introduced to you via Twitter!

  5. nice photographs. I like ice storms as long as they don't cut out power. Also, whenever I thin of ice storms I almost always think of the movie Ice Storm.

  7. These photos make me cold.
    It's starting to heat up here. I'm dreading the summertime though. I don't know which one I'd rather...Extreme cold/ice vs. Hell temperatures/humidity...Hmm..
