As many of you may have heard the Midwest has recently been hit by a big ol' ice storm! While Manhattan did not get it as bad as parts of Oklahoma, most of Manhattan lost power for a couple of days. In fact, my parents live in a neighborhood that still does not have power after losing it on Tuesday! The school that I work in is also in that neighborhood, and so I have had the last three days off. Kinda nice. For some reason the little neighborhood that Ross and I live in hasn't lost power once. It's kind of strange. We've been host to a few freezing souls-- which has been fun.
Well even though it's extremely inconvenient to many, it really is beautiful. We are enjoying a beautiful blue sky today with the sun shining brightly, and it makes all of the ice-laden trees just glow. It's incredible. I wish I had had my camera this morning when I took Ross to work. The sky was still pink and we passed by rows of trees that looked like they came from a winter wonderland! (Sorry for the cheesiness, but it was really cool!)
So I at least took a little walk around the corner and took a couple pictures from there.
