Nature & Books belong to the eyes that see them.
Brrrrr, this makes me even colder, but it was a great capture.
Thanks, Diane. I'm glad I was in the jet where it was somewhat warmer. I feel for those guys who have to work in bad weather.
I've heard of this, but I've never seen it. Interesting, Les. Thank you!Here's my Wordless Wednesday.
I've seen it far too many times, Deb. Beats the alternative, though. Glad it works! ;)
OK, that just makes me anxious looking at it. Just saying. LOLLove your new photo header. Looks like Oregon - wink, wink!
I used to get anxious about de-icing, but now I know that it really does make for a safer flight. :)Thanks for you nice words, Kay. You are right. That would be just south of Depoe Bay. Decided my header was due for a change.
I've never seen it done either!
Really? I guess we've seen it a lot since we always fly through Denver.
Jeepers! It looks like the plane's on fire!We had a (much needed) Snow Day today, so I read cozily by the window while my parents flew to Tampa. You travelers, you! So brave!
It does look like it's on fire, doesn't it? I've found that I'm less afraid to fly when I can take pictures. This helped ease my anxiety about the de-icing. :) Not sure if I'm really brave, though.Wish I were in Tampa with your folks. We are still miserably cold here, but at least the sun was shining today.
Oh, you're reading The Long Winter! Oh, oh, oh! I've read it so many times, and loved it so much...we'll have to talk when you're done. Wish I had time to reread it, but I know it well enough to discuss every inch. Hope you love it. xo
I'm enjoying it so much! I first read it in 1972 and am so pleased that it's holding my attention. Makes me want to re-read another prairie novel. Have you ever read O.E. Rolvaag's Giants in the Earth? Excellent book about life in the late 1800s in South Dakota. I am so glad I wasn't a pioneer!
