First, I leave the house as Katie and Liam wave goodbye.
Then I pass the circle where the trees are aglitter with ice and sun.
The ice storm has left a crystal coating on everything.
With the ice and the sun and the snow, even Bennoch Road is gorgeous!

It's just a magical day.

To see the full beauty that morning, treat yourself to the full sized panorama, by clicking on it:
Sure enough, the bridge is obscured in ice-fog!
And, so, therefore, was I!
