Skeletons

It doesn't happen very often so when it does it's worth a documentation. The way the snow stacked itself Sunday on branches was this side of amazing, if you ask me. When I looked into the woods, I thought I was on a Disney escapade amid the Haunted Mansion with skeletons dancing this way and that. The snow really highlighted the branches. It wasn't all that sticky either. Each branch seem to hold about 2 inches, and it stayed clinging all through the storm with little wind to blow it away. The sun, however did the deed yesterday.
The 'bony maronies' are frolicking no longer. 

*(remember that classic song?)
"I got a girl named Bony Maronie..."

  3. This reminds me of a magical movie I saw a few years back but, I can't remember the name. It was about a snow queen who traveled through woods that looked much like this.
