Warm Orange Wall (On a Cold Day)

It's been cold here in Virginia. Records have been broken and tomorrow's forecast includes that 4-letter word: snow.  Again!

We haven't had the deep snow that some places had, but the cold is really getting tiresome. I suppose we need to accept that extreme weather is the new normal. I have a certain spot in the closet by the front door dedicated to emergency supplies, for that inevitable time when the power goes out.  I'm glad that LED lights mean batteries won't wear out as quickly, and I have little solar chargers to boost USB devices.  However, I see on the Virginia Emergency Management list that I should add a few more items.

I'm also thinking we should replace a screen door with a storm door. When it's well below freezing and winds pick up, every bit of insulating can help.


  1. that is nice, warm light and good shadows. stay warm!

  2. Snow is a four letter word? Good use of shadow and light!

  3. Awesome shadow shot, I love it.. I hope we do not get a lot of snow.. Have a happy weekend!

  4. It is snowing like crazy here right now. That on top of the 10 inches we got earlier this week, which never melted due to the cold temps. I am over it!

    Very good to be prepared!

  5. Lovely shadow shot ~ son lives in NC near Virginia border ~ they are experiencing the winter cold also ~

    Happy Weekend to you,

  6. Nice capture of the shadows on this wall.

  7. Well there sure appears to be a lot of warmth in that lovely shadow shot. Stay cozy.

  8. I have informed my husband that we WILL get a back up generator. ;))

  9. I'm glad to see the orange--any color really! :D I guess I'm tired of everything being white from the snow.
