We had a perfect ending to a perfect day and as it begins, so it ends. A strong cold front moved across upstate South Carolina Wednesday evening that led to the most beautiful sunset. I caught these pictures from our deck just a few minutes before dark. The reflection of the sun on the clouds was beautiful.
The cold front spawned snow flurries and bitter cold temperatures. By 9:00 PM the skies were clear, the temperature read 22 degrees and gusty winds gave us a wind chill of 12 degrees.
I found the evidence of our cold night the next morning down at our mountain spring which is on the North Slope.

beautiful roiling clouds. the icicles are pretty, although seemingly early. 🙂
The low temperatures are ealier this year than normal as well as the icicles. Many people left their lawn sprinklers going and had their lawn and trees covered in ice.
Beautiful! We have had some temps in the 20’s, but no icicles…yet. Today 70 degrees! Crazy Colorado weather 🙂
Thanks for stopping by my little blog!
It was one of the best sunsets that we have had in a long time. We had 3 really cold days and nmot our temperatures are in the 50’s.
beautiful colors—and I love the icicles…a sample of what is no doubt on its way as we get closer to winter. I e-mailed you earlier today, letting you know that the check and the vanilla are in the mail 🙂
Hi Julie!! After I took the pictures of the icicles, I touched them and they broke in my hand. Thank you Julie, I did get your email and responded back to you. Have a great weekend.
Love those rolling clouds and impressive icicles. Nice.
Me too, this one one of the best sunsets we have had in a long time, very impressive.
Beautiful. We don’t get icicles here. Thanks for sharing

What a beautiful sunset. Can’t say I like the icicles. Brrr!
Beautiful pictures of the sunset! I can’t believe there are already icicles, very cool looking!
Yes, I didn’t expect to see the icicles either, they were wet icicle and broke off in my hand.
Wow! From gorgeous sunsets to icle photography ~ Wonderful! ~ carol, xxx
Thanks for visiting ^_^
Hi Carol, thank you!
I am glad you visited, hope you make your way back again soon.
Stunning skies! The icicles surprised me as there are none here…yet…and I am well north of South Carolina! You must be up in the mountains.
This was our first icicles that I could find. Our mountain spring water is usually the first to freeze since it is on the Northside of the mountain. Our home is in the mountains of South Carolina.
Glad to have you visit my blog!
Your sunset certainly was stunning and your icicles are amazing! We live in the SW corner of the UK so I don’t think we will ever get weather like that!
thank you for visiting my blog. Sometimes when it is rally, really cold I wish I lived somewhere warm! That way I could garden all year long.
Wow, your area really is already much colder than ours. Great photos! Thanks for inviting me to visit. Blessings, Natalie 🙂
Wow, these photos are truly gorgeous! I especially love the icicles.. you live on a beautiful piece of land:)
thank you Barbara, we live in the mountains of South Carolina, not too far from the Blue Ridge Mountains. We love it here, it’s private and very peaceful.
What an amazing sunset and the icicles look like crystals!
Hi, Michael, you have icicles now, wow! My pond is frozen as well. This sunset reminds about frost. Thank you for stopping by my blog, I will read yours!
Let’s say we had icicles, they are gone now. We had a cold front come thru that gave us low temperatures and wind chill around 12, the icicles were only here the one day. You must really be cold already to have a frozen pond!! It’s that time of year.
Very pretty! Can’t wait to see some snow pictures!
I hope we have several good snows this year instead of the freezing rain and sleet!
