I/Alphabe-Thursday

 Christmas in July?

You're correct. This ICICLE photo is from my archives.  It sure has been hot here - and maybe where you are too - so I thought you might like to see something cool and refreshing. Way cool, don't you think?

ICICLES at sunset

What? Too cool?  Well, what about this?

lol, why not? My family celebrated an extra christmas in may. Thatis because my granddaughter came home. She stydies in Hawaii and was sorry she missed the real one. :)

Buttons said...

Oh Thank you that seemed to work, I am sitting here with fleece on:) It may be the cold north wind blowing but I am sure the photos helped. B

Naperville Now said...

Halcyon said...

I don't mind the heat, but I wish we'd get some rain. My lawn is so dry. :(
I like your icy shots!

see you there! said...

Great shots, we don't need icicles at the moment, we are having a very cook summer in No.CA

Terri Buster said...

More chill please. It is too hot here.

Jill said...

Ahhhh....I feel so much better. Thank you!

Birdman said...

Wow! Even the lights are sweating out the heat?

Lowell said...

Yeah, right! I know you northerners. As soon as it gets warm, you cry for winter. When winter comes you cry about the cold! Sheesh! ;-)

But, the icicles warming in the sun is a nice respite from the heat!

Michelle said...

Nice to see a cool picture! I am boiling here!

Pam :) said...

I delightful sight for this very hot Floridian.
Thanks, I feel the chill.

TexWisGirl said...

Gillian Olson said...

Those iciles look pretty darn refreshing this time of year. Lovely shots.

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Nice cool pictures. But it didn't help to cool me down. It's been way too hot here and we need rain.

RedPat said...

It's hard to remember winter!

LONDONLULU said...

Aah, I needed that on this hot day (one of those when heat waves shimmer off the asphalt, ick). That sunset shot is just perfect right now - thank you!

Rose said...

I would love to be feeling some of this now...though I am not really wanting snow...it sure is appealing.

Michelle said...

Very cool. I could use some of that weather right now!!!

Giga said...

Zrobiło mi się zimno na widok sopli lodu. Pozdrawiam.
I felt cold at the sight of icicles. Yours.

cieldequimper said...

Actually, as much as I love winter and Christmas, right now I'd like summer!

edenhills said...

Wonderfully cool and refreshing pictures in the midst of this heat!

T. Becque said...

Oh yeah, winter is sounding good right now!

Mumsy said...

It's very cooling, and refreshing to see.

Judie said...

We could certainly use some of those icicles right now for sure!! Great photos!!

Debra said...

oh YEA ice

bring on ice, snow..anything ....:)

George said...

Thanks for helping me feel somewhat cooler -- at least until I go to work out in the yard again.

Deanna said...

Thanks I needed that....too hot for me this summer!!

Esther Joy said...

Very cooling! My husband discovered a cooler from Walmart called a "Froggie Tod" or "Chill Pad" or something like that. It's one of those damp towels that keeps its cool even in hot outside temps.

Stephanie said...

I love the heat. Great photos!

Susan said...

I would love to pick one and suck on it!

Randy said...

These are great. Love the second shot.

Rohrerbot said...

I like your thinking:) Is it bad that I haven't taken down the solar christmas tree lights off of our living christmas tree?:)

VBR said...

it was quite refreshing to view icicles on this 100 degree day! cool i post!

Jim said...

Love your icicles, Ms. E.G. I would have never thought about icicles for the "I" word in July here in the Northern Hemisphere. (I did think of 'ice cubes' though.)

I love icicles...and have photographed them a zillion times. Thanks for the cool images...pun intended. :)

Roan said...

I would enjoy a quick trip there to cool off. Or pick off one of those icicles and let it melt on my forehead. I'm beginning to wish for September, which is unusual since Summer was always my favorite time of the year. I think this year it will be fall.

Theresa said...

So pretty to look at!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Tres cool EG, do you guys do Christmas in July? We do here in Perth, well not everybody but there are many Christmas in July parties.

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

Oh my, not ready for cold weather. It's just around the corner though out here in the mountains...

lovely shots!

Madge Bloom said...

Bet there's a lot of folks who would love a day or two of chilly weather...

Lmkazmierczak said...

Great Idea for the letter I♫ Cool

tidbitsandtreasures2011 said...

The only icicles we see in my piece of Florida are the electrified variety that appear on many houses over the Christmas holidays. That is just right for me--I do not miss freezing temperatures or shoveling snow and icicles are definitely an indication of too much cold weather! Still, I'm sure the idea of crisp winter temperatures is appealing to people in heat-stricken parts of the country.

kaye said...

I can wait for winter and make do with a popsicle for now :D

Splendid Little Stars said...

definitely refreshing! and pretty! Thanks!

Jenny said...

Hooray! You alleviated my current hot flash!

What a lovely capture! I like the colorful tiny reflections in the glittering ice!

Thanks for an incredible share this week!
