Theme ~ Cold

It has certainly been cold this winter!  And I have certainly been cold.  There's no more appropriate theme for this week, especially as I'm typing this while two sons are out shoveling the driveway, and Fernando is fighting snowstorm traffic to get another to the train station for his trip downtown to UIC.

I chose the below image for my header.  I took this one through a car window while out running errands.  I was not driving.  :)

About 15 minutes before the above picture, I convinced my driver to stop along the road to get a scenic shot of the white-encrusted landscape from the ice storm the night before.

More Theme Images
