|This is the time of year that you need to get up early and allow extra time to get all the snow and ice off your car before you can head out to work.
|You pray that the snow plow will be by before you have to leave but some days the snow covers the roads quickly, even after they have just come through.
|The frigid winds bend the icicles so that they come close to touching the windows at times.
|The front flower beds are mostly protected under the blanket of snow.
|More long icicles hanging off the front walkway awning.
|A view out my window of the neighbor's trampoline.
|Gorgeous Winter sunsets.
