Just before Christmas, we had a brief ice storm. This one wasn’t as destructive as the one we had about six years ago, so instead we could just enjoy the beauty the ice left behind. At certain points during the day, the sunlight caught the ice crystals and the whole world seemed to be made of gold. Of course, it was hard to capture with my phone camera.
But by today, the day after Christmas, the ice has mostly melted, and the thin dusting of snow that fell on Monday has mostly receded, and we are back to brown winter tones.
