    We survived 7 days with no water, idk how many hours with no power....and hopefully will survive the grocery food shortage Texas is now having! :boggled: Snow, you are beautiful but I think we have had enough for a lifetime....Here are some of my favorite shots from our Texas winter wonderland!

    1) little birdy in the snow

    2) melted snow crystals on my lens created these really cool flares. I love how it makes the image seem "cold". paigewilks.com11.jpg

    3) exploring

    4) snow cactus

    5) snowy showers!

    6) our beautiful street, with about 4 inches of solid ice + 5 inches of snow O.0

    I like the light in this set. #5 is my favorite as one of those life's moments that you seem to capture so well. Were these with your Canon or Fuji? I think you mentioned you were getting a Fuji.

    Nice set of images #5 is my favorite. Shout out to you all with no power and prayers sent your way.Nature sure can be a test of our resilience.

    Nice set! I really like #4, the lighting is great. I moved to Colorado from DFW several years ago so still have many friends and family in Texas. Crazy times there, I'd say 70% of the people I know there lost power, water, or both for an extended period of time. Hopefully the powers that be wake up and start some infrastructure upgrades moving forward.

    I like the light flare in some of these and the road lead in, in the last.

    Thank you so much!! This is my sony :) It's basically all I use these days! love it so much!

    thank you!!! we made it through and are safe, with power, and water. we were some of the lucky ones for sure; and I'm super thankful for my overprepared husband :p

    Thanks so much! I hope all your loved ones are safe and that they have water and power! I sure do hope this was a wake up call, but let's be honest, they prob won't do anything about it :/ :/

    Real nice set.
    I have brothers in Austin and they said they got their power back but no water, everything is frozen so they're using bottled water and the back yard for #1's.
