Beautifully observed and presented, Andy. Something about the composition puts me in mind of some form of balletic dance, perhaps skating on ice with the delicate female as the tree in the foreground and the man at the rear.
A fine close up of that destructive element: ice! We have had several days of frost and icing so as to cause power failures. The daytime and nighttime temperatures remain within a few degree of each other so the frost/ice continues to build with very high humidities. Bad news for power companies who rush from outage to outage!
Yeah, I liked that “Ice Ice Baby”, too. When I saw your title, the first thing I thought about was Pres. Obama and that he probably feels as though he now has the weight of the world on his shoulders. Well done, Andy.
