The big snowstorm we had here (well, big for here anyhow) turned into an ice storm that left a layer of ice all over trees, branches and pretty much everything else. We were some of the lucky people at our house that didn't lose power. One report said that 65% of the people in our county were without power after the storm. Here are a few detail shots of the ice.

We had a pretty substantial snow last night and this morning, which has since simply turned to freezing rain. However, we all took the day off and let the kids out to play for a while. Kenzie liked rolling around and throwing the snow, while Reece, on the other hand, just ate a little of it, then wanted to go in because it was cold.

Lately, I've been leaving one of my flashes and a GI remote on a light stand and just tucking it away in the corner. That way, if sometime pops up, I drag out the stand, throw on an umbrella and have a quick good light source. That came in handy this morning, as my daughter got dressed up in her red hat and scarf just before going to church, so I quickly grabbed the camera, moved the umbrella in close and snapped this portrait with very little setup. The desaturation effects were done in Lightroom.

We have yet another kitten that showed up at our back door the other day, and of course our daughter can't resist helping it (after all, it is really cold outside right now). I told her this one wasn't going to stay in the house, but she did talk me in to letting her live in the garage until it warms up out. Guess I'm just a pushover.
