Oy! Too hot for hazel's taste.... Did you survive?

I think it got down to about -17 F the night before I took the pic of the water spout. I think it had been raining the day before. It doesn't freeze solid like that all at once--but if there's a drip or even a slow-moving trickle, it freezes on the ice already hanging from the spout and adds to the sculpture.

I think that's Macie making the snowdog. LOL Nah...she was just whapping at the snow boulder. They like to break pieces off and eat them. Unfortunately, it irritates their throats and makes them cough all evening.

Glad you enjoyed the snow. It's raining today And tomorrow... Then Saturday the high is going to be 17 F again and everything will freeze rock solid and slick. *sigh*
