Blender and Ice Storms

Well... it's been a good week so far... I'm on Spring Break, which is really cool. I needed it after the last couple weeks. We had a big ice storm Saturday night. We have had a great abundance of ice storms this year. I think it's climate change. Sunday morning before church we were all crazy and ran outside in the woods and came back through the field. It was stunningly beautiful with all the ice on everything and the bright sunlight making it all sparkle. I took some great pictures, but as I can't seem to find my camera card, I can't download them to my computer, which is very unfortunate as I would upload some of them. In the meantime, I down loaded a bunch of free software to my computer. One of the programs, Blender, is a 3D rendering program that has actually been used for some movies and things like Spiderman 2, but is available  free online. It's quite complex and not exactly the most self-exclamatory program ever, but since I haven't had much else to do, I decided to try and get a reasonable understanding of it. I've only been working with it since Saturday I think, but here is some of the stuff I've made:
