Ice!

We got a little ice storm here today. Thought I would share a couple photos.
This is about 3/8s of a inch on everything!




The last is some ice I pulled off the Magnolia in our yard. To give some scale these are 1/2 inch thick and 8 inches long.

Looks like the kind of weather we get up here in New Hampshire! Hope you don't get any damage!

Unhappy This is Georgia?

59, We got it pretty bad here on the South side, too. I'm trying to post my pics but the files are too large (have to be <100k). Can you tell me what kind of photo editing software you use? I'm getting nowhere with the likes of Paint. Oh weel, time to go start the BarBQue.

The magnolia ice form

is really pretty. That Airstream seems like it might be shivering, maybe it's just me thinking about all that ICE! Nice shots.

Why I Like Minnesota

It may get cold here but we don't seem to get the extremes other parts of the country suffer through.

To get a picture under 100K you usually have to make sure to change the pixel resolution to under 640 x 480 and save in JPEG format. Be aware most digital cameras save in a much higher resolution. This is extremely easy to do on the Macintosh. I don't know much about Windows Paint. I do know that Photoshop Elements will do the trick.

Glad to see that ice did not get as far South as Florida. It has been cold down here this winter. Our coldest night it went down to 20, so far this year.

Paint uses bmp files...and they are large.
You need to convert the bmp files to jpeg or another format that is smaller.
Try right clicking on the file in Windows Explorer, and see if you get an option to convert the file to a different format that would produce a smaller file size.

Jim,

My windows software came with "Microsoft Photo Editor". It is in under Programs then Accessories. If there open and open the picture in question. Once opened go to "Image" in the pull down menu and then select "resize". Then change from "inches" to "pixels" and resize the pictures and save result.

I use MGI Phot Suite II SE. Came with one of our scanners. Its real quick to use just need to make sure you got some some ram. Very happy with it for a free software. This version seems to work better for what I do then the Photosuite 8.1 that came with another scanner.

Should be able to find a on line editor. You can upload it to the Photo section and link as well.

So far we have been real lucky. Got to about 3/8's of a inch. Few flickers but no loss. Already melting. The magnolia sounds like car crash every couple minutes. Its melting enough that the ice leaves are falling. Its snow ball effect and as one from the top falls it collects a few hundred on the way down.


Last big ice storm we had here we lost power for 40 hours.


We get a good one every 4-5 years.
