The Claw of Winter


Water drips

from frozen tips

as temperatures dip

winds whip

creating an icy grip

 the claw of winter.

Noticed this interesting ice formation on the branches of our lilac the other day.  Not sure how it happened or what made it form that way, but I thought it looked kinda cool so I snapped a photo of it.   It wasn’t quite the right lighting from this angle, but I had to snap it from this perspective to capture the claw-like shape.

We’ve got some cold temps ahead in our forecast here, so we’ll definitely be feeling the icy grip of ‘the claw of winter.’  Hope you’re staying warm and cozy wherever you are.

And because this scene from Toy Story keeps playing in my head…

“The Claaaaw.”
