The weather here has been crazy. Saturday it was actually in the 40's. Certainly a lot more balmy than we are used to lately. Then it got really cold again. When that happens, things start melting and then, BAM, they freeze. I have a really nice patch of ice on the walk leading up to the house - water one day, ice the next. I put a box with "ICE" written on it. I was afraid I would go out in the morning to get the paper and find the delivery man on the ground. We do have coach lights that stay on at night but I wanted to be careful.
I keep our flag flying all the time - yes there are lights on it at night. I looked out at it this morning and it looked really strange - and shaggy. At first I thought it was starting to ravel from the wind.
Upon closer inspection I discovered they are what I'm calling "frost threads"! I've never seen that before. Have you?
We're constantly learning new things here where it snows!
