It’s still October, right? It is, isn’t it? It’s been hard to tell by the weather in the Texas Panhandle this week.
We’ve had Ice Rain and Thunder Ice. It hasn’t snowed. But everything is super frozen.
It’s strangely beautiful to see green things encased in ice. Like my fennel plant and small blades of grass.
Green herbs (mint), kale, and tomatoes appear to be alive and well under glass.
I drove through town on the way to the pharmacy and saw the explanation for our power outage. Trees are down, branches blocking the road, and electrical lines are frozen.
Walking around the orchard and garden was beautiful. I’m fascinated by all the ice bubbles and icicles. Everything was dripping and crackling. Even the turkeys looked frozen.
It was beautiful for a few minutes. Then it was just cold. Chicken noodle soup, here I come!
