“What is most surreal thing you’ve ever seen?”

I don’t know. But I can tell you what the most surreal thing I’ve seen this weekend is.

We had an ice storm Saturday and it was crazy weird.  In the evening we heard trees cracking and limbs hitting the ground. Some of them came perilously close to cars in our parking lot.  The sound of the trees limbs cracking off of trees in the night was very surreal

When we woke up everything was encased in ice.

I took out my camera and snapped a few black and white film photos. When I was outside I heard ice and tree limbs crumbling to the ground. It was actually quite terrifying! I shot a video before I went back inside.

Today we are back to rain and all the snow has melted. It was fun and exciting while it lasted.

This is the first Friday in a year that I haven’t posted something from the previous week! And that is because I didn’t take any pictures this week. And I don’t feel bad about that at all. It was nice to not have that chore hanging over my head everyday.

The good news is that the snow is finally melting! I can’t tell you how happy that makes me feel. To quote one of my colleagues, “I’ve never been so happy to see gray slushy snow in my life!” Amen to that! I’ll be so happy to be able to just get out and walk. We haven’t been able to for about three weeks now. I’m sick of feeling claustrophobic.
