ABC Wednesday: Distorted

I have been without the internet 
for almost three days.  What a bummer!
In the meanwhile, from 3 p.m. Tuesday 
six inches of snow was dropped on our fair city
with three to six inches more forecast for this evening.
I feel blessed to have a warm home 
with no interruptions in electrical power.
But... I do need to shovel more snow behind my car
so that I will have a driving path to the street.
I hope that everyone is safe and staying warm.

Yesterday while waiting for my car to warm up,
I snapped these two images with my phone.
 Distorted image,
ice playing tricks with my view.
Artistic license!

Head over to
for a bit of fun,
hosted this week
by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt herself!

Very good choice for D! Last week we had been without electricity. We are so dependant on electricity. I am glad to know how we did it in the past. The only thing I really didn't like was that my central heating didn't work. It uses gas but is triggered by electricity.

Great distorted views from your window! Sorry it's so cold, but like you said it's nice to have a warm home:)

sometimes distorted photos are actually great images due to serendipity

Hi Nonnie. We are in the midst of a winter blizzard over here! It has been snowing since about 5:00 this's almost 5:30 in the evening now and it is still coming down! This is an old Celtic prayer: Deep Peace to You
Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the infinite peace to you.
- Adapted from ancient Gaelic runes

it is for anyone to use I'm glad you like it. I like it too.

oops I just notice that the one on my blog is a little different. I did not write either one of them so you are welcome to use which ever one you like best. They were written by ancient Celts and/or Druids.

Hi, Norma. Temporarily being in Missouri has been teaching us all about winter survival. What an experience. Life is sure forced to slow down.

Norma Ruttan said...

Norma Ruttan said...
