Ice glazing, and chili-with-cornbread talk

Since blogger appears to be having trouble with the header pictures, I'm posting it here. (not my original idea)

Ok, I think the worst of the ice storm is over.
The Lord showed us His mercy, in making the temperatures right above freezing, so the rain fell as water and not as freezing rain.
So, it looks like 1/4" of ice on everything. The trees look like a post card--the entire city, nay the entire midwest. If we could have a satellite picture...maybe it would show as white something.
The ice fell on 3" of snow and the rain fell on that. The rain did not wash away the ice, as it washes the snow. But, it is almost winter: 10 more days-or so-it will be the shortest day of the year, the beginning of winter, and the official start of the chili-soup season.
Yes, chili with corn bread [made from scratch, not the Jiffy stuff--we like that too] and chopped fresh onions and lots of grated cheddar cheese.

Also, some of our children, love cinnamon rolls with chili. By the way, I DO NOT like beans--only green beens from our garden, so 'my' chili does not contain any kind of bean/bean flavour/bean extract, or any other sort of bean derivative.

Well, our neighbours across the strees have no lights on, none of them. Wow!

Better post and get off the computer, just in case.

The lights just came on, Thank YOU LORD!

I don't have pictures today, so I'll leave you with this:

"The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?" Psa 27:1
In His hands, ^__^

I'm glad that things aren't real bad where you are. We're fine here in SW Oklahoma too. This is definitely soup and chili weather. I like beans in my chili along with the onion and cheese.
