Ice Whine ???

I think I mentioned .. a few "thousand" times how Kingston is the "Twilight Zone" of weather for Ontario at least. What can send shivers up our spines here .. is the wisp of an ice storm. It has been 10 years since the unbelievable "perfect storm" hit Ontario and Quebec .. we were lucky .. we were living in the Netherlands at the time .. but we saw the destruction even when we finally did come back to Ontario .. stunning.
So .. sneaky albeit small, threats of similar weather has us all on edge. It is going back and forth this week with rain .. freezing rain .. a ball game of "where will this go ?" scary weather.
Thus the pictures of my beloved "plant mobile" in its coating of scary stuff .. even now the temperature is swinging to rain .. but not far behind the dip is going to happen again. As my UK friends would say "ROLL ON SPRING !"

I think ice wine would be much preferable to freezing rain. That is a major pain to get off windshields and one thing I don't miss about living in Ottawa.

Hi Kate ... I totally agree with you .. I have had to use my blow dryer a number of times to be able to open my car door .. it ain't a pretty sight when I get that frustrated ! haha
Have you ever tried Ice Wine Brandy ? That is GOOD stuff !
