Freezing Fog, Ariat Boot Giveaway and Haiti Donations

Our tree break, encased in thick snow/frost

Well, if that ain't everything all in one kaboodle ... freezing fog, Ariat boot giveaway and Haiti donations!!

First, a reminder: If you haven't entered Misha's Ariat boot giveaway at her blog, From My Front Porch in the Mountains, you need to get on over there and do so! She extended the giveaway until tonight at 7 p.m. since her comment button was playing wonky yesterday!

Our entire tree break view - see the gate in the middle?

Secondly, another blogger friend of mine, Cindy of Write Up My Alley, is donating $1.00 to the Haiti cause (up to $200) for every comment that's made on this particular blog article. You have until February 5th to head on over there and make a comment. Let's put her $200 to good use ~ skedaddle on over there right now and leave a comment!

The dirt road to nowhere... disappearing into fog

Our weather is playing with us since last week... first, our big snowstorm on Friday, and now MORE freezing fog. We had almost a full week of fog the 3rd week of January, and now it's back, only this time it's freezing! What fun!! Oh well, it made for some nice photos. And it's a good opportunity to get caught up on indoor things, isn't it?

Spring will be here soon enough and the outdoors will call my name... hence I've been trying to plan our gardens this last week ~flowers, vegetables and herbs. I still have a ton of planning to do, and I better get it all figured out soon... it'll be seed starting time in just a few weeks!

  1. You do know that frozen fog is called hoarfrost, don't you? Looks like your hoarfrost is the 'fuzzy' kind like we've had here recently. Check out the hoarfrost recently photographed around Hutchinson KS...

  10. Gorgeous! I sure wish we had such scenery here in the bay area...but we have to drive to Tahoe or Yosemite to get a chance at such winter scenery. Interesting note by Moonshadow re hoarfrost - now I know!

  11. I have such a love/hate relationship with winter. I really, really hate the cold. But I really, really am in awe of ice/sleet/snow views. It's snowing here as I type. Again. I am sick to death of this weather. But I never tire of looking at it. I think I need therapy.

  17. Lovely photos Susan as ever...simple yet story-telling.
    Just wanted to stop by and say thank you for the comment you left me about family and friends not following your blog; good to know I'm not the only one. And you're right, the blogosphere is a fantastic place as I have recently found...comfort and support, apparently, knows no bounds.

  19. I never knew that hoarfrost was frozen fog. I thought it was just cheap floozy frost. LOL

    I love your pictures. It's been a long time since I've seen hoarfrost and it's so beautiful!
