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.

Post Photo Editing

Thanks for the tips! Unfortunately, we don't have any if the programs you mentioned on any of our machines (one Win 98 and two XP machines). I'll keep searching. At least, we don't have a program that will allow "resizing".

We got lucky here on the south side. Only lost power for about 10 minutes yesterday afternoon. Lots of power drops/surges, but only 10 minutes outage.

As usual, lots of great ideas. I love this forum. Everybody stay warm!

Great ice pics! Here are a couple of options you can get for picure resizing.
https://www.hamrick.com/reg.html
Down load Vueprint for about $50 This is what I use to look at and resize my photos.
OR
Go to Download.com
http://www.download.com/3120-20_4-0....iew&tg=dl-2001
Download Lview Pro 2004. They have a free trial version. This works well but is not as easy to use as Vueprint.
Good Luck. PM me is you need more info?

I live about 25 miles north of 59toaster and we got the same thing. At least he ventured outside to take photos. I opened the door and let the dog go out on his own. He was funny. Even the grass was frozen and he was having trouble walking on it. It was like walking on top of a pin cushion. My kids thought the frozen rain was snow and wanted to go out and play in it. Neighbor lost a pine limb, but we lucked out and lost no limbs for a change.

Yes, about 59,000 folks in metro-Atlanta were without power at one time over the week end. One of my co-workers from Henry county was without power from yesterday morning 'til 9:00 pm last night. Another from in-town Atlanta still didn't have power this morning.

Pretty, but pretty inconvenient if you live on one of the in-town tree lined streets without underground utilities. I can just imagine how long it will be for those folks to get their cable back on...thank goodness for Direct-tv!

Today, in school, 8th graders: about 9:30 a dense snow began to fall, straight down, no drift, like a snow globe held upside down. Kids went crazy-just knew school was within minutes of getting called. The snow fell and fell, covered the ground. . .beautiful! And then it was gone. Melted, just like that! No snow day. Sad kids. Saved another day for spring break! Gleeful me
