Fête de Glacé

ice3  January 30, 2010

The recent ice/snow storm passed us by. With sunny skies, here in northeast Missouri, we decided it was a a great day for a day trip.

We arrived at North Main Street, Saint Charles, Missouri at about 10 AM, Saturday morning.  The temperature was 20 something. Perfect weather for ice sculpting.

The mosaics show a few of the beautiful works of art in ice. 







 We stepped inside this shop and two galleries, to have a look around and warm up before returning to the sculpting.

The Black Labrador Retriever reminded us of Molly.  He put on quite a show, playing with chunks of ice.


On the way home we stopped at Barnes & Noble.  Treats Unleashed is just a couple of doors down.  While I browsed the book store, J picked up a few Molly treats.


 J signing a petition, at the ice festival, to prevent puppy mills in the state of Missouri.  We believe this can’t happen soon enough.

Our thoughts are with folks who lost power as a result of the ice storm.  We hope your power is restored soon.  If you happen to see orange trucks from a Missouri Cooperative, it might be our guys. They recently returned from working in Iowa. I’m sure a crew or two from our neck of the woods will be in your neck of the woods soon, if they aren’t already there.

J tells some very interesting stories about working ice storms, during his nearly 40 years as a lineman for the rural electric cooperative.

Please stop by Mary’s Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.
