Going through my photo library, looking for images of winter, I came across this photo that I took 5 years ago today. It was a good reminder of the ice storm that struck Manhattan, Kansas and large parts of the midwest in 2007. Parts of town were without power for 10 days. As pretty as it was, brrr … it was cold!
Though the temperatures have gotten quite cold – a low of 9 degrees F. yesterday – I’ve still heard a few people expressing a wish for some real winter weather. But let us be careful what we wish for.
That’s why I prefer a snowstorm over an ice storm. Stay warm.
Working on it : ) Today wasn’t too bad.
Boy can I ever relate to “be careful what you wish for” I was so longing for some snow and we then got absolutely clobbered with it this past weekend! It’s soooo very lovely, but our snow blower is on the blink and shoveling it all by hand was an absolute beast! Gorgeous photo here once again Laurie. 🙂
Thank you, Jewels. I hope that you are finding some way to enjoy your snow : )
I feel the same way about Denver weather. It was 70 last week, now it’s 20. I’m longing for winter…until there’s a huge storm of course.
Actually, I was rather happy with the 70 degree weather. I was just wishing for some rain overnight!
I remember this ice storm! That winter of 2007/2008 was actually a big catalyst in my decision to move to Texas!
I can understand why!
