The Oliver Observations

A Throng of Ice and Fire

Apologies if this short post has a slight quality of the stoned hippy drawling ‘Wooow, look at this man, but I just wanted to share these great pictures from the BBC website.

In Chicago this week a warehouse caught fire being completely burnt out. But there was a silver, or at least crystal, lining when the water the firefighters used in attempting to douse the blaze froze encasing the building, fire engines and the surrounding area in an eerie coat of ice.

I think the resulting pictures, viewed in flurries around the world may be my favourite images of this winter.
Even better than the County Durham grandmother who built her granddaughter the ‘tallest snowman in the UK’.
