This picture, taken by our own Patti Anne (nice picture Patti Anne - that's 4), is just off the corner of Main & Roderet in Valdese. It shows ice spilling over the sides of the fountain located in the courtyard of the Waldensian church. It's just not natural, and not because there is an erie blue color about the ice. It shouldn't be this cold here.
This morning Pickles the dog and I went for a longish walk in a nice soft rain. If it were summer time, that might be pleasant. But since it was barely above freezing, it was pure dedication to walking the dog. Pickles didn't seem to mind, but the human in the group was quite uncomfortable. I suppose I need to get in touch with my inner dog.
