Icy woods this morning behind our house.
I woke this morning to find an icy-snowy wonderland of whiteness outside with the temperature sitting at 24 degrees and Augusta County schools on a two-hour delay. Little frozen icicles are hanging from everything -- limbs, bushes, vehicles, bird feeder -- and the skies are overcast and gray.
After a brief tease of spring temperatures over the weekend, it's not disappointing to have another blast of winter since we are, after all, still in February and, hopefully, it offered a little relief for fires that are still burning in parts of the Valley. Be careful out there ... it's still winter....
