Winter Storm

Well, we actually got the ice they were predicting, and then some. We ended up with a good 1/2 inch of ice on everything. Then to top it off, we were without power Sunday night to Wednesday early afternoon. Thank God for generators!! And the natural gas space heater in our basement that kept our home comfortable. I actually ended up melting snow and ice to wash my hair on Tuesday. A little taste of the past I suppose. Funny how, when it is taken away from you, you realize how much you take running water for granted. On Tuesday the sun was shining and everything really looked beautiful. I took a picture of our small weeping willow tree that looked amazing. Funny how something so damaging can look so pretty. Our three dogs looked so cute out enjoying the sunshine that I just had to take their pictures too.

  1. We have been there. Our famous October storm a few years back left us in the same situation except we lost power for 7 days. The first day was alright...the next night was cold and then we moved out into our camper and spent the remaining days there. Our winter camping in the driveway :)
