Ice.  That's all I can think of when I go outside.  There are many inches of ice built up around our porch and in our driveway.  The roads are now skating rinks.  It's dangerous.

But it's also beautiful.  Everything sparkles in the sun, and each tree branch is perfectly coated.

Also, that post I made about Asian Beetles biting me?  I was wrong.  Turns out, I'm just randomly sprouting hives.  They restrict themselves to the skin on my joints and scars.  They flare and I'll have 20-30 of them for half a day or so, and then they fade away and I'll have just a handful.  Then they flare again.  They are intensely itchy, and also cause a lot of tenderness in the tissue beneath them.  Not a clue what's going on, but there are no systemic symptoms so I'm not overly worried.
