A little ice with combinations of red and green make a match for the season. Yesterday, lots of black ice dotted the landscape and made for some tricky early morning driving, and in my case some carefully maneuvering to the bottom of the driveway with the trashcans. However, it also meant that the camera had to come out early, before the fire in the woodstove even. Buildings and scenic downtown images would have to wait for another time. With my 4-wheel drive, snow I can take, but ice can be a whole different matter. Sometimes it's like recklessly, riding the bumper cars at OOB or the spinning teacups at Disney. You never know what direction you're going to go, or where you're going to end up. Ice, steep hills and your vehicle can make for a treacherous combination. Be safe out there!
