A clock of turkeys were undaunted by the icy conditions.
They browsed in the corn field then made their way around the upper barn and pecked about in the back field for over an hour.
It is difficult to get a decent photo of them. Usually they scurry into the woods when I step outside.
Note the 'tom' in this group.
The concrete apron off the carport was slick with ice, so we crunched through the herb bed to bring in wood and go about chores.
Ice on the nandina.

It was not a day to be on the roads, and there was no reason for us to brave the ice.
Schools and county offices, the library, even the chiropractor's office [where I had scheduled an appointment] were closed.
Today has dawned bleak, but with a bit more light slowly appearing in the grey sky.
The forecast is for a rise in temperatures until we hit a balmy near 60F by midweek.
