Check out these icicles that are hanging from the escape ladder outside our apartment...

I'm fascinated with anything winter-related because where I'm from, the South Bay in Northern California, we don't see these things! Once we had a really cold couple nights where puddles of water outside froze, and my dripping spigot created a sort of still-form of water falling... that was beautiful and unusual, and it was melted later that day. Here, in Pennsylvania, the cold sticks around! Icicles can grow to massive size due to the sun melting it slowly during the day, then the cold evening temperatures sets it in place. It's crazy!
Do you have some lovely icicles around you? Any frosty snowmen to speak of? Or are you one of the warm & lucky ones, who just get to walk around with a light sweater on when you go outside this time of year?
I'm warming up with my cup of coffee, sweater, socks, and cozy kitties & boyfriend. What are you doing on this chilly winter's day?
