Frozen Fountain, Main Street, Valdese, NC


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.

Nice photo Patti Anne. The frozen water color matches the sky and that's cool.

Sure is pretty - not like here where even 3 feet of snow and ice can't make this place even remotely pretty

What a beautiful pic! Love the brick work on the ground.

Pickles is one lucky dog! I don't walk my dogs, I just let them loose in the yard.

linlah: Patti Anne says thanks!

Grace: It is a pretty little town, for the most part. But it should not be this cold.

Heather: If I let Pickles run loose, she'd create all kinds of havoc in the neighborhood. Hmmm, maybe that's not a bad idea....
