Sitting around watching the ice melt.

Sounds like the height of retirement excitement doesn’t it? Well, I’ll take all this excitement I can get.

We had a ice storm. Yesterday and last night freezing rain fell steadily. Everything is covered with a thick coat of ice. The sun has come out and turned the countryside into crystal. Step outside. It sounds like a heavy, summer downpour. The ice is melting that quickly. Each drop a prism making its own rainbow as it falls. There are millions of them. Once and a while, I hear crashing as a larger section of ice slides off a wire or limb and smashes on the ground or pavement.

Having the time to take it all in is wonderful.
