Iced Up In Ohio

Ice on a weed.

I was excited this morning. I was up before dawn and I was ready with my camera to take photos of the ice this morning.

It was too icy. I couldn’t even walk in it. There is just the miserable cold drizzle of a rain too. I’ll have to stay indoors for a while.

Snow, ice, and rain on the sidewalks.
Snow, ice, and rain. Spring is coming.

March in Ohio means snow, ice, rain, then more of that again. Sometime in that order, sometimes not. That leaves the area constantly cold and wet, but with some hope in sight.

The reflections everywhere remind me of looking at them in the sidewalk on the cold walks to school. I was always anxious for the last of it to melt away and warm weather to start again. Same feelings today.

I didn’t get a photo today. When that happens I go back a few days and see what didn’t make it before and choose from those. Some days you can get a bunch, others life gets in the way.

Seagulls are my favorite birds to watch. They are supreme survivalists and opportunists. They show up everywhere, from the deserts to the oceans. They’re not afraid of anything and they’re always checking us humans out to see if we’re got anything for them.

These birds seemed to actually enjoy the snowstorm.

Spring Is Almost Here

It finally was warm enough for a comfortable long hike so I went to Dawes Arboretum this morning to check it out. ¬†The pond is still frozen over and the trails were muddy, but the birds were out. –
