I ventured into the rain and ick and falling trees to take a few pictures.



Part of my front yard. The Whomping Willow is taking a major beating.

My driveway. Y'know, I was feeling a bit guilty about calling in to work. Now? Not so much.

If you don't think of the destruction factor, ice storms are rather pretty.

Oh, see, that's pretty. We just had snow all night, which turned to sleet about three hours ago, and now it's pouring rain, which means I'll be falling on my ass for the next week.

The snow in the city was quite beautiful last night. Nowhere near as destuctive though. We had an Ice Storm like that in Michigan when I was a kid. IT was gorgeous the next day.

Pretty.

Glad that you called in and stayed safe though.

Other than the destruction, those are VERY pretty.

Gorgeous photos too!

Yeah. I got up this morning, looked out the window and said, "My car does not need routine maintenance enough for me to go out in this." I'm just wondering if I'm going to make it to rehearsal tonight. We're very floody/slushy/slidy up here still and I may say "make music without me"

Ew. We just have a foot or so of snow and then an inch-ish of ice under it in most places - we haven't had any nastynasty ice storm things yet.

Hello
This seems a strange post to put this on, but as I am not the most computer savvy individual, I don't know how to simply send you a message through live journal. To comment upon the pictures, yipes! We had a storm up here in Spokane in '96 that was VERY similar. The trees snapped like matchsticks!

The reason I am actually messaging you. Tammy Pierce actually gave me the link through her LJ because I told her about my experiences with Renn Faire, how my character began as a lady squire (affectionately called the Squady) and is to be knighted this year. I've trained to joust, though I've never been able to do it in front of patrons before. I might get to this year and I'm extremely excited. Anyway, the lovely Ms. Pierce told me you were also a jousting lady with the New York faire and that I might be able to hear some fun stories from you.

I do hope to hear from you at some point in time.

Ta Ta for now!

Re: Hello
Alas, I've not been jousting for the past two summers. I miss it desperately! I do have a host of stories, though, and would be happy to share. But then, I want to hear your stories, too! Fair is fair, right? :)

I'll be friending you. Just so's you know.
