The Cold Hard Facts


Like everyone else last week, we were given a gift...a gift from Mother Nature who apparently hasn't decided whether she wants Fall for a little while longer or if she want Winter to come early.






And while Moon loved the snow that fell overnight on the fourteenth, I felt rather badly as I wandered around the yard taking things in.


Although beautiful in it's own right, I hope it didn't suffer.
So I Googled "Is freezing to death painful?."

What do you think?

  2. freezing and drowning are the easiest ways to go, or so i have heard. i rather freeze than drown... don't feel bad for the dragon fly, they kill butterflies... so when i find one drowned in our pool, i think ok, now our butterflies are safe...

  3. Beautiful photos of your yard. Poor dragonfly. I wonder if they just die each year or where they go into hiding for the winter. What about all the other creatures of summer. Guess I should Google that.

  6. Don't they say that dying of cold is a good way to go? I suspect I can think of a lot worse ways.
    Poor dragonfly. Maybe (s)he was already dead when the water froze.

  11. I don't know if freezing to death is painful or not but I know I would be miserable up until I died since I HATE to be cold.

  15. Hi JP.
    It sure looks like winter there.
    Weather patters seem to be changing all over the world.
    Your front garden looks so lovely with the white snow.
    A great photo of the dragon fly.. I suspect it just has a lifespan then dies..or it got drowned.. must google and see.
    Happy days..

  16. Well we got the cold and snow too and I can't like it! One of my nieces used to say "I can't like it" when she didn't like something and it's exactly how I feel about being cold. It hurts my body, so I think it would be painful, until you went numb from freezing! Makes a beautiful picture though and I didn't know they killed butterflies.

  17. We can't wait for snow over here. What a lovely series of shots.

  18. What a poingant shot of that dragonfly frozen in to place. I am hoping that when it thaws out it will fly away. Wishful thinking. Lovely capture of your dog out inspecting his kingdom!

  19. First I'm not sure that snow if a "gift" but God decided we needed it anyway.
    What is it about dogs and snow, they always seem to enjoy it.
    Oh my that is so sad about the Dragonfly but what an awesome photo of it frozen in time like that.

  20. The photos of snow are beautiful, JP. We infrequently get a dusting of snow here in the deep south. It's unusual for it to be so cold this time of the year- I can remember wearing shorts until mid-December years ago. There's definitely been a change in weather patterns. Sad for the dragonfly, but that is a pretty photo of it.
