Ice is not uncommon in South Texas, but it is not common either so when it does happen it is a bit of a novelty. When we had the icy morning a few weeks ago I realized when I finally left for work that the downspout for the front gutters had frozen over, so out came the camera. Of course, this explained why the seam in that particular gutter had burst open a short time before!
The icicles were small, but at least we can say we had some!
These petunias didn't seem to mind the layer of ice.
The leaves in the frozen birdbath reminded me of fruit cocktail suspended in Jello!
