I was amazed when the water on our bird bath turned to ice yesterday. I am like a child who just mesmerized with the power of nature. click Here to see the bird bath at the backyard. My husband said that he will show me a thing that I will like better. Armed with my Blackberry phone, I took these pictures just an hour ago. I am thrilled I know but, I am also aware the negative impact of this cold snap to us.
This frozen fountain might be nice to look at but, there are people who see this as a "negative sign" that can bring danger to the community. With this Arctic Blast, the people who are directly affected are those who live on the streets.
The homeless people are taking refuge in shelters like the Salvation Army and Red Cross. They are provided with blanket and a place to keep them warm. There is one casualty in our city, a man found dead in his home with no heater and they found out that there is no gas in the propane tanks. Sad story really! I hope everyone will be safe.
