weehee and this is my first ice day!! :D

I was first surprised when I got an email from my school that it's closed!! they usually don't close due to large population .. and it was a bit struggle for crayola going potty outside, he slipped a couple of times. :o some pictures to share!

view from our balcony, hard to tell ..

my thunder covered in ice!


you can see the texture

this is how thick it is ..

you can't find my lens or me!

looking up ..

and a warm picture..

LOL we have Ice here too but school was out anyway for MLK day. So my son feels cheated! :D Glad you get a play day!

Well one I learned years ago- do not try to take the ice off your car. Let it run and warm up. The reason is it will scratch the paint.
We escaped the ice storm. .. They gave us a warning for last night- but it went too far up..

what a cool view (in all word extention ;)).....

poor crayola... cold feetsies.....

I believe the winds have been bringing the cold down to me too, we havenīt had snow but itīs been quite cold........

I bet the kitties were happy they had a litter box :P......

I'm glad you got an ice day- aren't snow/ice days the best? :D

Now you can stay inside today and drink hot cocoa!

01-15-2007, 01:26 PM
yeah, that is why I took a little off the plastic surface (sided-mirror). I even can't open the driver's door. :eek: we are gonna pour a pot of hot water on her when we leave for starbucks and borders project later this afternoon. :D

hm, my school opens on MLK day, I guess this isn't a biggie to you then.

yes, snow/ice days -- best!! everything, branches, trees, grasses, roses, icicles, etc., are beautiful! when I took crayola out, I thought of the disney movie, bambi! :D :D

Wow! That's a lot of ice! YAY for no school! :)

I had no classes today; classes were cancelled due to Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

just watch the hot water it can crack up the windows..........

That's cool, never has happened here, and probably never will haha since it's never that cold. We already had today off because of MLK day.

Those are cool pictures by the way. Also that is VERY thick ice.

and second day of snowing!! (had been since umm, a week and half??) and it's snowing, snowing .. anyway, today I learned that yesterday, our icy day was the second time in ten years!! :eek: it was a thrill for me. :)

I am suppose to have two long classes today but one teacher's car wouldn't work so 4PM class is cancelled too! look what I saw this morning ..

(..and no cars, compared to yesterday..lol)

right view from balcony

some ice from yesterday still ..
(my car's antenna)

can I go, run yet!?!

crayola always knows to sit before I make a command, "go play!" or "run!" - I wouldn't say "go play" if there's no dogs I know out there. in last picture, crayola was waiting for my command then saw a loooong flock of canada geeses. :eek: it wasn't V-shaped, it was just a long straight line. something different!!

we just finished our last class for the day and we're going to our snow doggy park crayola sooo deserves!!

:D :D

Wow those are great pictures. That's cool the second ice day in 10 years! Must of been exciting. Crayola looks so cute in the last picture, yes Crayola so deserves a snow doggy park time. Thanks for sharing with us.

lol here it's -29 degrees and no snow day, just bitter coldness. The teachers think we should be tougher than that. So they make us come...

lol I love the mirror shot. :p

you're welcome almita and thank you! I liked the mirror shot too, if I could keep the original size, you could see ice cracks, really neat.

today, another happy snow day!! :D and two classes to go. :)
