Wow! An Awesome Phenomena To Share With You

February 20, 2014

Good morning.  Gosh, I woke up to a wonderful surprise this morning.  It was only six o'clock and it was already daylight.  This gives me a little extra boost of energy.  And, the best part is that Spring is only thirty days away.  Woo Hoo!  If I had springy hind legs like a bunny, I'd by hopping around with excitement.

DIL Janet was here last evening, and we had ourselves a nice visit. She has been working extra hours each day so that her work won't fall behind too much while she is away in Florida.  She will be joining me there halfway through my vacation, while daughter Audrey and a friend will be driving down to spend the first week with Pogo and me.   It's going to be fun this year because we all enjoy photographing nature.

I have a lot to do today so this will be a short post.  However, I really do want to share a couple of awesome photos that my friend Maryann sent to me.   These are ice waves from the floor of Lake Huron, Michigan. 

Are these not awesome?  Can you imagine going out for a walk and seeing something like this in a huge local lake?  This wave phenomena occurs in Antarctica, but these frozen waves are in Michigan!!  Does that say something about how cold this winter has been?   Mother Nature is certainly amazing!

Now I really must get going here.  Pogo and I have to be in the car and on our way (errands) in less than an hour.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Stunning ... I can only imagine how that must occur. I know my son's friend threw a glass of water up in the air when it was subzero and it was ice before it hit the ground. Makes you think twice before going out on days like that ... we are made up of mostly water,ya know :(

So I am thinking you may be going to drop off you tax goodies today, right? And maybe mail your selfie box to Florida? Your departure is coming up fast ... oh, how I envy you. I know, I could go, but not this year ... saving for Switzerland.

WE had a big snow storm coming from the west and warm air coming from the south at the same time. Of course they met right here in my neighborhood and what we ended up with was a smooch storm. The ground is covered with white stuff, but when you walk on it, it splases up like water. You would not believe the mess. Izzi didn't even know what to think. She basically tiptoed out, did her business and tiptoed back in. It is so wet and heavy that I don't think even a snowblower will be able to clear it. I am hoping it stays warm long enough to just melt it ... but then, there is the flooding issue. Boy, Mother Nature is sure letting us know how unhappy she is with us ... and rightly so. I don't think we will ever be able to get our act together as long as we are being ruled (the operative word is ruled) by the greedy corporations. We really desperately need to reverse the "Citizens United" Decision.

Well, while you are out and about, I will be in going through stuff to get rid of. I am determined to dispose of all of the junk we have around here. I have all kinds of things to give away and as much to throw away and some I am saving for my friends Garage Sale this summer. Sooner or later I will get it under control and my son and breath easier ... his greatest fear is that it will all still be here when we are not. So you have a fun day out ... maybe you and Pogo will get to stop at the park ... that would be nice, right? See you tomorrow, Edna and Pogo ...

Those frozen waves are AMAZING! I know Lake Huron well and I've never seen that. Yes, it has been WAY TOO cold!

I found the “driveway tax” to be odd. If I understood correctly, they tax your car for a spot in YOUR driveway? Wow.

I have to make it a brief comment today. I’m mostly on battery because we’re in the middle of LOTS of thunder! I’m okay with the rain melting down the snow as long as it’s not bad enough to cause flooding, but the worry is that there is definitely a flood danger. All that water and even warmth and our pipes are still frozen. :(

Well, I’m off to blow up my flotation device, just in case!

Hugs, Nani

The frozen waves are incredible, as our the ice caves in that area. I have not seen either of them personally since I am a wimp for outdoor activities in the cold.
It was in the high 80's today - very nice.

Seen this ice wave too. it is really awesome!
Oh, so nice you had some lovely hours with Janet. Don;t try to hop around too much like a bunny, although I can imagine why you would like too LOL!
I am happy for you to hear that you will have company at your Florida trip. It will be fun, first Audrey and then Janet. I know, Pogo will be delighted too.
Must get to my post now, nd try to do some things in the house before we have another skating (speed0 event to watch.
Have a great day
