ABC Wednesday -- Year 2 # 9



Go here if you would like to join us for ABC Wednesday. . . Mrs Nesbitt


I wasn't sure I could participate this week because I couldn't find any I photos. Then, I thought maybe I could fudge a little and show you a few of my cards I make by stamping with colored INK. I went to search for them in iPhoto and remembered that I do have "I" photos from a few years back . . .

These are from the ice storm of 2004. Icicles on our home, icicles on the shed, icicles on the bushes, trees.




















Icicles are on the shed out back. Can you see that really long one?

Iciclesare on the neighbor's carport.











The bush is covered in icicles.















Icicles hang from the overhang of the front porch; the streets are icy because the snowplow doesn't come by and the snow on the lawn has turned into a sheet of ice also.












Even tho I shoveled the driveway before I went to shovel driveways of two elderly people, our driveway iced up again and our neighbor cleared a path to walk.










Icicles on the back of the house.






And icicles on the bushes in the next two.

When mine goes up at midnight you will also see icicles. Mine are bigger, but certainly not as numerous.

Oh, I get to be 1st...these are fantastic shots of the icicles. It's a wonder you didn't break a leg walking on that! :D

What a lot of ice!That is kind of scary! Your elderly neighbors must be thankful to have you for a neighbor!

Jonna said...

I think you did a great job digging out those icicle photos. I've seen too much of it lately, but as long as it is at someone else's house, it is OK>

Great photos. Ice is so pretty to look at.

You can keep all the ice and snow and I'll stay in mostly warm Florida. :)

BumbleVee said...

I, too,... couldn't think of much for I... it seems there are too many adjectives no enough nouns....
