My 'frozen' World

Today my world is a frozen Okieland tundra!

The tree's have been iced

The grass has been frosted

The hammock yearns for summer warmth

All 77 counties in the State declared in a 'state of emergency'

450 wrecks/accidents dealt with by the Highway Patrol

But you can't help but admire nature's frozen beauty

It's best done through the window though, from a warm bed!

And I'll be doing the same today, as school is out for a snow day.


To join in the fun go to My World Tuesday

Since I'm not dealing with it, I can say it is absolutely beautiful. I grew up with ice storms. The kind that knocked the power out for 2 weeks. It still does there. Hated them. But OH how pretty it makes things!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Oh I hate ice. I just hope we don't lose power.

Great pictures.

Hi Bon Bon! Yes, thru the window is correct. Don't go outside or you will slip-and-slide! Brave mum for venturing out but came back in with wonderful photos :)

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

and a very red frozen face to go with them Pam.

Yay just heard we have no school tomorrow - yippee!

Sarah: Nice captures of your icy world.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Awe Sarah---Hope you don't have to go out tomorrow.. Ice is terrible.. I'll agree that it's pretty--in pictures. BUT--I wouldn't want to drive in it. We think we're going to miss this latest big storm. We may get some rain but that's it --at least until Wed.

Love the kitty!!!! The ice storm is not bothering him/her in the least is it??? ha

Hugs,
Betsy

Lovely frosty details you have there. The cat looks so warm and cozy.

LadyFi said...

Stunning pictures! Is it normal for Oklahoma to be so cold? Enjoy the ice from a warm, toasty inside!

George said...

You got some beautiful pictures of your frozen world. Just be careful if you go out on icy roads.

Rob (Inukshuk Adventure) said...

No fair! I do the snow and ice pics. Just kidding. Glad to share a bit of winter wonderland with you. Take care in this weather. Best to follow Bon-Bon's example!

Gaelyn said...

Ah, a three mug day. Looks like a perfect day to stay in a warm bed. Yet I can't quite believe you took these excellent captures thru a window. (Oh I see you had to go out and get cold and red. LOL) Sorry your world is so frozen. I saw some snow flurries today, but it didn't stick.

Marites said...

looks very cold and i wonder will it ever stop:) The pictures look beautiful though especially the close-ups. Cute cat you got there:) my world is here

Lover of Life said...

Beautiful pictures of your frozen wonderland.

Sylvia K said...

Your photos are gorgeous! Although having had a really, really cold winter for Washington, I'm really ready for some spring and colors! Thanks for stopping by and for your comment. Always enjoy your blog!

karen said...

SandyCarlson said...

You have captured the beauty of the tundra, to be sure!

jinksy said...

As Sarah the Brit
is a handbag fanatic,
let's hope her house
has a very large attic...

The Blonde Duck said...

Brrr! Get thee to a beach!

koala said...

People freak out with a bit of cold and then the same when there's a heat wave.

Susie of Arabia said...

Wonderful icy pics! Makes my nose cold just looking at them! Thanks for sharing your new world with all of us!
The only ice in my world is in our freezer... :D

Mare said...

It is really beautiful to look at from the inside of a warm house with a cup of hot 'tea'[in your case]. Stay warm.

imac said...

Magic post, even the cat loikes the snow.

Carver said...

I'm sorry you are in a state of emergency but it is certainly beautiful.

Dee said...

Yes, I've heard from family that it is very cold there now.

Jill of All Trades said...

Unfortunately I had to be out in the stuff today. Now we will have to make our way home this afternoon, hopefully sooner than later. I love you kitty...so sweet.

Juls said...

That is exactly how our neck of the woods looks today.... Not fun to drive on! but beautiful

Daryl said...

Stay in and warm.. snuggle BonBon ... which is way less caloric than eating bonbons...... ;-D

Andrew said...

Every part of the year is my favorite, but I think winter is my most favorite. Beautiful pics!

Expat mum said...

Now that's what I call soft southerners! We've been living in it for months. Mind you, we don't half complain about the heat in the summer!

Janie said...

I'm with the kitty. Good day to stay in and watch through the window. Ice is beautiful... from a distance. Hope things warm up a bit soon.

willow said...

Gorgeous, icy, Doctor Zhivagoesque world you have today! Hope your power holds up. Stay warm out there!

Melinda said...

I won't even let my kiddos look out the windows for fear that they might want to go out in all that stuff.

Spring can't get here soon enough : )

Dirk said...

Wow, does looks very very cold! Thanks for sharing.

Amber said...

This cold Oklahoma weather is no fun at all! We should atleast get some real snow and not sleet!

Kathiesbirds said...

That is one wise cat. Hope you get to curl up and read a good book!

Silverback said...

Hi Sarah just strolled on here from Dylan's blog so got a LOT of catching up to do. Love it so far.

I enjoyed my drive through Oklahoma when I was touring the states years ago but right now (with the temp at 81F) I'm glad I picked Florida for the winter months !

DeeBee said...

I loved your pictures. I hate this ice we have though. I was out driving in it at 6AM. It wasn't too bad at that time, but it's worse now. Stay warm!

Sandy said...

What beautiful pictures.
Hope you stay safe and warm.

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

Don't fret all, I have stayed indoors in the warmth and my PJ's all day!

EPM - sod off!;-)

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Ice storms amaze me. So destructive and so beautiful.

Lovely pictures!

A Brit in Tennessee said...

Ooh we are were supposed to be on the "south" end of that weather system, and luckily we had mostly rain, but right to the North of us (next county), they had the freezing rain.
Tomorrow maybe snow ?
I am thinking maybe Lancashire Hotpot days...lol
Stay warm, and off the roads !

mannanan said...

Fantastic photos.Made me feel cold just looking. We've had it cold on the island for a few days but nothing like that. Than God for the Gulf Stream. Thank you for sharing your world with us.

Snippety Gibbet said...

Beautiful photos!!!

That system that dumped all that ice and snow on you is on top of us now. Yippee!!

Wren said...

I'm getting cold just looking at those photos. What an icy, beautiful world this week!

Jenni Jiggety said...

GREAT pictures!

Sara G said...

Awesome pictures!!
Thanks for sharing your part of the world with us.

Lew said...

The cat has the right idea for a day like that! You captured the cold well in your photos. Unfortunately the same storm is heading our way after putting the freeze on a bunch of states in the midwest.

Arija said...

Beautiful frost pictures and how nice for you to hav a day off because snow.

Flea said...

What fun! I've really enjoyed our ice day here as well. Beautiful, isn't it?

crunchiemummy said...

Those are some fantastic photos. We got a little bit of ice down here in Florida, but not too much -- in fact, it all melted by 9 am!

Thanks for stopping by my blog by the way!

Catherine said...

love the frozen pix...very very different from my world right now!!
