ice laden

another shot from last monday morning. as you can see, the earlier snow on sunday morning had by the evening turned to ice and then more snow came down. the good thing was that by monday noon, the ice had almost melted and it wasn't such a burden on the branches and twigs. i remember an ice storm six or seven years ago where trees broke their main limbs from the ice that came overnight and the chain reaction of the damages were astounding.

i'm fine with the cold, as long as the roads and pathways aren't icy. have you ever driven on an inclined icy road and you have to make a left turn? i had. and it took a lot of control on the brakes, as i also have previously driven on an icy bridge and the darn car made a 360 degree turn. at least it rested facing the right way. i've also driven alone through a snow storm where it was a complete white out and i couldn't see the car in front of mine. i must admit, i had the best advice and best driving experience from the a*****e ex, one of his few better qualities. but he's still an a**.🤣
Love winter and the snow...bring it on.
I was driving home from work one night in a terrible snowstorm and a snowplow came out of a cross road leaving a row of snow I had to drive through SCARRY!

@bubblequeen - i lived with my ex at his mother's farm house so she would have company. that's how i learned how to drive in snow. in the rural areas, they don't plough the snow until the next day and in more recent years, it took days and it's up to the residents and farmers to clean up the road. there was one time i came home late and it's been snowing the whole day; and if i wasn't familiar with the road i was driving on, i could've ended up in a ditch and nobody would find me until god knows when. i was sweating profusely from the ordeal. funny but the one and only time i ended up in a ditch it was summer!

I love driving and will drive anywhere any time and am so fortunate to have a car that is 4 wheel drive but I was totally frightened that day!

Very nice shot

I like the melting ice and snow on the branches. I don't like to drive on ice, but if not too deep have been out in the snow. They don't plow the secondary roads very quickly here and Lord help you if you live off of a secondary road. I worked a job where I had to go no matter what the weather. It's hard to say you're snowed in when you only live two miles away.

Lovely shot and interesting narrative. We used to live up on a hill in Germany, the car kept sliding backwards on the icy road! I certainly do not like snow at all.

Nice shot and great narrative! It's been so long since I have seen real snow and although I love the pictures of it - they are so pretty - I do not miss the cold.

A lovely image and not one that I will ever see in Western Australia. Many years ago we visited one of the skiing areas close to Canberra. The leaves on the trees were coated in ice and the tinkle as they knocked against each other in the breeze was beautiful.

This is a lot of snow! I love this picture, it's crisp.

FAV Love the composition and the subject. If it ever snows here the people generally just stay inside because they don’t know how to deal with it.
