Happy Valentine's Day. Do you need ice for that drink? The great ice storm of 2007 has passed and unless you happened to own a four-wheel drive vehicle or a Zamboni, chances are you were stuck at home Wednesday as the Hagerstown Ice & Sports Complex worked on its massive outdoor expansion. It was a romantic day as my fiance, Sherri, and I spent it doing what most couples do on Valentine's Day - shoveling our cars out in a futile attempt to get to work. Sherri didn't make it to work and spent the day getting caught up with Maury "I Have the Results of the Paternity Test, and you are NOT the Father" Povich.

These photos submitted by readers have an artsy feel, and some of them were manipulated to give that effect. One photographer prolonged the shutter exposure allowing for the effect of slow moving water. Another used a special lens to get a shot of a tiny lichen and heightened the color. Another simply let nature provide the artsy look. We invite readers to submit their best recent photographs taken in the Tri-State area.

"Cold for so long, unable to speak, yet your mouth seems framed on a cry, or a stifled question. " The opening stanza of John Haines' "Ice Child" seems a fitting poem for this time of year, so I wasn't surprised to see it as part of the "Today's Featured Poet" section on the Poetry Out Loud website earlier this week.

A day off provided extra opportunities for our children to play outside and become so cold that they were unable to speak.

scottb@herald-mail.com TRI-STATE - Wednesday's freezing rain and slush knocked out power to more than 10,000 homes in the Tri-State area and kept road crews busy Wednesday but officials said trees and limbs downed by the weight of the ice caused more problems than slick road surfaces. The storm glazed roads and sparked public schools and businesses to close across the Tri-State area. Washington County Public Schools had not made an announcement about whether schools would be open today or on a delay.
