Checking in

OK, I got a couple pictures of our little Ice Spatter 2007. It's still not very impressive here, but the central portions of our state got quite a bit. At least A stayed home from work, and we still have our electricity, so I'm not complaining. (too much) The picture above is from the roof over our front porch. The back has much more impressive icicles, but I'm not padding out there in my slippers to take those pictures.

The tree below is on down the street a bit. You can see that it and some of the other trees around it have a thin coating of ice.

On a totally unrelated note:

I found this interesting article on Gov. Huckabee from the Drudge Report. So far I really like this guy for the way he stands up to his critics and says exactly what he thinks. I can't help but feel that he doesn't actually have a chance at defeating the democrats, but he's definitely the best bet so far, and will get my vote if it comes to that.

I bet you'd love our icicles. They are thicker around that my husband's arms. Not kidding. And I am not married to a small guy. If they fell on a kid's head, they really could kill the child. We have to go and knock them down so the kids don't do it and get injured/killed.

Yes, I don't think he stands a chance of actually getting elected--not enough money for one. But he seems like a decent man. I think I've got to go with Romney though--though there's still a few things I disagree with there too.
