Grogeus fall image, Carolyn! Hope ya'll survived the icestorm the past few days! #805906

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe December 11, 2007

Thanks Don. The ice storm has so far missed us. It went just north of us this time. If we can get through today, we should be out of it.

Alan L. Borror December 11, 2007

Wonderful autumn image, Carolyn! Glad you survived thus far! Ice storms are so brutal and destructive. I assume you used the buzz filter here. Tried to download it but the company seems to have gone out of business. Nice work on this image. #5194693

Bonnie C. Lackey December 11, 2007

Oh, Carolyn, this is gorgeous! Glad you escaped the ice so far...what an awful storm... #5194728

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe December 11, 2007

Thanks all!! It's definitely the buzz filter...and it's definitely gone out of business. I'm hoping somebody picks it up so everybody can have one. I had a real bad time loading mine after I got a new computer,(darn that Vista) but they sent me a new disc just before they went out of business and I finally got it loaded so it works. #5194804
