Howdy Folks! If you would like to view skies from all over the world click here: http://skyley.blogspot.com/. Our SkyWatch Friday hosts are: Yogi, Sylvia and Sandy.
Greetings and Salutations from Illinois! It is very cold here. This A.M. it was 8 above zero then later on it warmed up into the 20s. At the beach it is windy, the waves are frozen into hills and when I squat to take a photograph a strange dog comes by and licks my face and jumps all around me. I noticed a lot of ice everywhere I was walking and so tensed up but continued my shoot. Patience helps. Along came a person to walk along the sandy section of the beach and that is when I snapped this shot. Sky is almost the same color as the snow and ice on the shoreline and then there is a section of blue exposed gently in the corner. Tomorrow it is suppose to reach temperatures in the 30s. I can hardly wait to experience the ice melting on the sidewalks, alleys and streets. Some malls have snow piled up in their parking lots so high I wonder if the snow will ever melt; but of course, it will.
