When I took a walk in the yard a few weeks ago, I discovered something unusual had formed on the ice. When I took a closer look, the strange patterns appeared to be pine needles on the frozen pond, but nothing like that had fallen from the sky during the forest fires. What were they, and how were they caused?
The strange formations appeared to be on top of the ice.
Shadows stretched in patterns across the pond, trimmed with a furry white robe. I had no desire to dig in my toes into the aforementioned fur. It was freakin’ freezing outside.
I took a closer look, careful not to slip. Grace is NOT my middle name. The ice was a thin veneer. No animal tracks. Not even a bird. Nor mine. Whew!
Strange shadows created their own patterns while icy needles embroidered the surface.
Weird or what?
The heck? Oh, yeah. 2020.
