Jack Frost

I live in a beautiful place -- a valley, surrounded by mountains. I'm very blessed, I know! But there is a small price to be paid -- sometimes in the thick of winter, we get stuck in an winter temperature inversion

Yeah, those are the *tops* of the mountains you see. I'm somewhere below that sea of fog, clouds and c-c-c-cold.

My sweetie and I braved the cold, grey morning to capture some of Jack Frost's work around our neighborhood -- we only see it when the inversion hits. Everybody hates the word inversion here in Utah -- but there is beauty in every thing, if you look for it...

Grey foggy January morning

Frost on the lampost

tree frosted over

crystalized jagged snow

frost on the pine

January sun trying to break through the fog

Ooh! I'm shivery just looking at those pictures! I'm off to put the kettle on for hot cocoa! Brrr! Hope you are cozy and warm where you are!

I have to add...my living room TOTALLY looked like yours after Christmas. I went all gung-ho and 're-organized' my Christmas Decorations...although I only have three containers, I got it down from six boxes! :) LOL!

I too hate to inversion but what it does to the trees is amazing. I loved the winter walk with your pictures.
