We did go out today. The drive was more than a little scary. We only got an extra little dusting of snow, but the further north we drove the worst the roads became. Husband is such a good driver in the snow, but even the main roads were snow/ice covered and the motorway, in parts, was a nightmare. It was tempting to turn back but the exits from the motorways were worse than the actual roads so we kept going.
It was beautiful when we finally got where we were going. There was sunshine! The skies were beautifully blue. We had a good walk. I ended up walking more than husband. We went to park in the car park by the beach, but it hadn't been plowed and husband didn't want to get stuck so he drove to another car park that had been plowed and I walked along the beach to meet him there. We did some more walking then.
While I was walking along the beach I saw lots of ice balls in the lake. Amazing to watch. I actually got more than a little distracted by them. Hope you can see the video below. They were quite large!
A couple of phone photos of the sunshine! Such blue skies!
The drive home was a little less eventful, as the road crews had been through and, although it was below freezing, the salt on the roads melted most of the snow.
So glad we made the most of the sunshine as when we got back home it was cloudy.
I'm off to bed. Really tired. Walking through snow is quite tiring!
Those ice balls are intriguing - I've never seen anything like them. I suppose they are formed by wave action? xxReplyDelete
The ice balls are fascinating. I watched your video more than once ... I find them quite mesmerising. xxReplyDelete
I must admit that, despite the cold, I stood and watched them for a while!Delete
I've never seen ice balls before but you get much lower temperatures than we do and far more snow.ReplyDelete
It's really amazing how they form! We're in for a cold spell so I'm sure there will be a bit more ice forming.Delete
Wow! Balls of ice! Thank you for sharing the video! I enjoyed watching it!ReplyDelete
