Freezing Fog

Now that it's almost Spring, I'm finally getting around to adding my pictures of the freezing fog.
I'm running a bit behind on things on this computer.
That's an understatement.
This winter season has been a long one on a few fronts.
I've had a lot of extra babysitting kids, which is a wonderful thing.
I had to quit a set of brothers that I've been babysitting for 2 1/2 years, which was an incredibly hard thing.
We've had a hard winter weather-wise. We've has lots of snow & wind & ice, & even some freezing fog.
February was the hardest with the loss of my Mother-in-Law. I was blessed to call her Momma for almost 25 years. I'm so thankful to know that she called Jesus her Savior, so I KNOW she's in no more pain & living with Him for eternity. Praise the LORD. I miss her & the grief hurts, especially for our children.

I'm ready, oh so ready for Spring. I've seen my first robin, which always brings tears of joy to my eyes, some years even more than others. I really had to choke back the sobs this year!

So just before we shout HELLO SPRING, here's one last quick look at something wintery:
Freezing Fog

This fog hit us for 3 or 4 mornings in a row. I'm not sure I understand how this freezing fog works. We had about 10 inches of snow on the ground, & these few days the temps were staying around ZERO, & we got this fog every morning. I wouldn't want to drive in it, but it sure was beaufiful to look at what this fog left behind.

The freezing fog left this really thick layer of what looked like snow, but was actually more of a freezing mist or frost. It was really cool.

Then the sun came out & burned away the fog, & left this beautiful sight.

Beautiful pictures! It was so pretty those days, but I'm sure glad we're on the "Spring" side of the year! Bring on the sunshine :)

Beautiful pictures! This winter has been a really hard one in many areas of the US. Hopefully the spring weather will come in gently - but naturally they are predicting lots of rain and flooding.
