Sounds about right. It was -3° here this morning - don't know the chill factor, but it was breezy.

Haven't been out shooting much, so not much to post. You can always click the link in my signature though.

Casey, make sure you have a couple of hours before you click that link. There are some wondrous sights. Especially love the black and white pictures.

When it is 30-degrees and raining, ice forms on trees. We get this a lot in North Texas. I looked out my office window, and grabbed my camera...

Cute "Mutt and Jeff" photo, Farmer Jon.

BT, that hibiscus is lovely! I really like the ruffly pink one.

TAT, that is a great shot of NYC. It should be on the wall of the Chamber of Commerce or something.

So sparkly, cd. I hope the roads stay clear enough for drivers in the AM, though. It looks like they aren't slick right now. It also looks like the neighbor across the street has his driveway astro-turfed...

LOL, not Astroturf, that is an "aggregate" driveway. They basically poured concrete with a lot of pea stones in it, and as it set up, they washed it to reveal the pea stones. It looks nice, but it is brittle and terrible to walk on barefoot.

The ground is way to warm for ice to form on the roads, with the exception of some bridges and overpasses, that are up in the air.

I like my astro-turf idea better.

I know what you're talking about with the aggregate. Too bad there isn't an epoxy tough enough to stand up to TX heat. There is a company in OH (maybe other states, too) called Nature Stone that uses a thick epoxy to seal the stone floor/driveway/etc. From the looks of it, though, it's still not a smooth surface. Probably a lot nicer to walk on barefoot, though, than just stones tarred to the driveway.
