Fire and Ice

Freezing rain again ... but a warm fire in the wood stove. No one is moving anywhere. About 4 mm of ice coats all surfaces – especially the smaller branches which are very efficient as ice collectors.  The priority was to stand outside and experience the freezing rain first hand – then go back inside to paint in front of the fire. Three doe bounded across the field while I painted. By the time I finished the atmosphere had lost the above freezing layer aloft and large flakes of snow had replaced the freezing rain... I won’t bore you with the atmospheric details of what this means...
