January page

What a month it has been, and it is barely half over. We had lots of snow in December and the first part of this month. In our yard, we had about two feet on the ground plus 5 foot snow mounds at both the top and the end of the driveway. We were able to snow shoe several times in the yard and through the adjoining woods. This is such a beautiful time of the year in New Hampshire.
Last week, after single numbers, the weather turned warm with occasional rain. The snow began to disappear way too fast. On Friday we had sleet, freezing rain, and the trees were laden with ice. I loved the icicles hanging from the railings on the deck. The trees are so pretty when icy, but some of the young birches had their tips on the ground. We were lucky to have the ice melt overnight.
This month my page is reminiscent of the sparkling icicles.

Icy! Brrrr! Looks the the sidewalk I remember having to shovel. But boy, when a fresh snowfall comes, there is nothing so quietly beautiful. You captured it well.
