Tennessee Ice Storm

People like to tease us in Tennessee for shutting everything down for winter storms but we have enough sense not to drive on a solid sheet of ice no matter how hard we get teased.  Shutting everything down affords the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of a world of ice crystals.  We save gas not driving on ice and we spend time enjoying the magnificent sight of a landscape of glistening diamonds.  It won’t last long so we must enjoy it while we can.  The temperature will be back up this week end and the wonderful, magical crystal and diamond world will be gone.

  1. That’s a real ice storm for sure. You’re lucky your temps will be up and it will be gone. It’s horrible in Chicago, temp wise. Thursday the high is going to be 1 degree. We all hate this vortex weather. Your video was beautiful. Thank you.

    1. We will be getting down to -6 tomorrow night. I can’t recall it ever being that low before. I think our high will be in the teens.

  2. How beautiful the ice that you’ve captured in this video. I love the way the ice mimics the shape of whatever it’s on rather than just freezing in a clump. Breathtaking.

    1. Thanks so much! It does create a magical landscape .

      1. I referred you to a blogging friend in Sweden, Viveka from https://mygulitypleasures.wordpress.com/ I think you would enjoy her as well.

      2. Thanks!! I will check her blog out!

  3. Lovely … video – I wish we had a bit more winter … but it’s gone and the snow drops are blooming. Second winter – not like Sweden at all. I want winter to be winter and spring to be spring. Poor nature.

    1. I agree!!! Thanks!

  4. It is a world worth capturing. Great to see you again! How’ve you been?

    1. Thanks! I’ve been crazy busy with a new venture coming soon. I need to check up on those rascals in the Punchy Lands!! What trouble have they been up to lately??

      1. Oh, that sounds cool! Hope you’ll tell a bit about it in the future. Yeah…they’ve been up to the same dadblamery, you know. *sighs* They never change.

  5. Our ice has ice on it! I don’t remember this much prolonged bitter cold. They are giving heavy rain and flooding this weekend now. Seems like the closer we get to spring, the worse the weather is getting.

    1. It’s crazy, isn’t it!! I don’t remember this much prolonged cold either! I’m ready for Spring!
