Daily Photo 2.4.11 (Snow Day- Austin)

I was so glad I did not have to go into work today.  It sounded dangerous out there to drive, but then we decided to take a walk and shoot some photos.  When I stepped outside, it was cold but sunny, and for just a bit I thought “oh, maybe it’s not that bad”.  But then we got to the street right outside our complex, and they had 17 cars on the side of the road that could not go anywhere.  They slid into each other on a big patch of ice right outside our driveway!  So I was VERY happy I did not have to drive anywhere.

Here are some of my favorite shots from today.  I will start with the mess on our street.

Daily Photo 2.3.11 (Frozen Fountain)

I thought I would take advantage of the freezing weather and get some photos of frozen fountains.  I really like this fountain, with the great metal sculpture around it.  This is located on Auditorium Shores, at S. 1st and Riverside Dr., just on the south side of the river (Lady Bird Lake).  Did I mention this is in Austin, TEXAS!!
