Ruby Tuesday #45: "Canopycicle"


"Frozen Awning"
Raleigh, NC - January 2009 (Click to embiggen)

Ruby Tuesday - Are you red-dy? Hosted at

As I'm writing this it's late February (yes, I schedule well in advance) so I can only guess what the weather's like now that you're finally reading it, but if it's a typical late June in North Carolina, this scene from last January was what we were complaining about not so very long ago. Remember? No? Well I do. And I said at the time we'd miss these days. Doesn't it look refreshing right about now?Violence UnSilenced

My godness! You nailed it! That is exactly how I feel right now! it is 32 degrees Celcius in the shadow - and I almost long for winter!

Congratulation to you and the interview at Authorblog! Great reading! Quite an honour! :)

6 MONTHS in advance? Whooee!

Yep - sure could use a shot of that right about now.

Wow, you are an auto-scheduling king. Holy cow.

And yes, it looks remarkably refreshing right now.

It does look refreshing. . . and we're almost there again. :) We're 60s in day and 50s in night this week - NICE!

And I make myself WAIT until the day in order to whet my spontaneity...only because if I don't exercise that muscle, I will become an old stick in the mud! Nice reminder of cool times.

That is positively cruel - funny, I'll admit, but cruel. It's a wonderful image. In another life you must have been a longterm planner!

Combine this with the red slushy picture elsewhere I was just looking at and the triple digit weather here is actually feeling comfortable. Well, not really, but you get my point.

Couldn't wait to get home to AC today, Mojo! It's getting hot here! Love the RED photo! Happy Ruby Tuesday! :)

I have no reason to complain about heat and humidity - the icicles look as cool as a cucumber. Ane the dripping ice looks almost jewel like, contrasting against the red eaves. Nice!

I really like the composition of this photo. One red (the window's shade) seems to cross another red (the bricks behind).
