Ice Ice Baby

It's been very, very cold here recently...in the 20's/30's for about a week, which is rare (and, I know, for many of you, that's like summer weather)...it's so rare, that I've only seen the sounds freeze up like this a few times in my 20+ years on the Outer Banks.

Wow, those are really great photos! I'm originally from NC and I really miss the winters there. I live in Hawaii, not that I'm complaining, I just miss having actual seasons!

Freezing weather makes for all kinds of awesome photo ops. Yours are beautiful--so so cool! My favorite is blue sky against white snow.

Great pictures! It's pretty cold here too... down in the teens at night.. not out of the 30s during the day... that is NOT what the weather in Alabama is supposed to be doing...

I've always enjoyed seeing photos like those!

We are supposed to hit 30 tomorrow here in Upstate NY and we were talking this morning how that's gonna be a heat wave for us.....Is it spring yet? I don't mind the snow, but I hate the cold!

Great pictures. I have family that lives on the river in Camden (across from the Coast Guard station). I remember visiting one January when a couple of swans were frozen in the ice around their pier ...

The pictures remind of Lake Erie being frozen in Cleveland.I would never think this happens here in North Carolina.
