Ice Palace, Fairy Trees, and Zombies

Help! My house is frozen and I can't get out! Can someone come kick in the door for me?

We got an unbelievable amount of rain and ice here the last two days. The trees are beautiful, they look like they've been carved out of frozen crystal. It looks like something out of a fairy tale. If I could get my door open I'd take a picture for you!

I hope you're all staying warm and safe. I'm going to settle in with a big pot of coffee and watch one of my favorite movies, Dr. Zhivago. (Yes, when I'm not watching zombie movies I have to admit I'm an incurable romantic. But don't tell anyone or I'll send the zombies after you!)

Oh I wish you much better weather soon! We had a very similar weather on the Christmas Eve - first a big big snowing for a few days and then the rain and frost on the Christmas Eve! But it melted down after the New Year :)
Have a good time watching the movie!

I hope you have enough food! Should I send you some fried chicken? Now how are they to be delivered? hmmm..

Wonder what it is like not to be able to come out when you want to. Are you claustrophobic?

TreeFeathers said...

Oh Sans, I love fried chicken! But it would have to be able to fly here to get in, lol. Luckily I stocked up at the grocery store before the storm hit. I am not very claustrophobic, it was kind of cozy to spend a day inside (as long as I have plenty of coffee and good movies!)

I did finally get my door open by late afternoon. The whole world outside is frozen in ice, and now covered by more snow. Crazy weather! I've been watching the news, those poor people in Australia, after all that flooding now there is another storm hitting them. I hope everybody is staying safe and warm.

I love the ice palace photo, it seems we are having extremes of weather in both hemispheres. Here in NSW we are fixed in front of air conditioners with 40-degree celsius temperatures outside, and wind to go with it yesterday. Felt like a tinderbox ready to ignite. Hopefully some rain will settle things down soon.

I'm glad to hear you finally got your door open!
I'm so tired of winter and looking at the dirty grey mounds of snow! I hope spring gets here quick!

About Me

My Photo
TreeFeathers
Griffins, traditionally, are Guardians. Often carved at temple doors in ancient times, they were said to guard the way to Wisdom. I, on the other hand, seem to be the Guardian primarily of odd bits of string, pinecones, scraps of paper, mismatched socks, old calendars, homeless imps and gnomes, pencils with no erasers, jokes nobody gets, forgotten gods, keys with no locks, and other people’s lighters. If any of these things might be of use to you, let me know.
