I'll say it again... Ice is NOT nice

We got walloped again last night with another winter storm. This time Mother Nature decided to give us ICE. The forecast called for 1/4" of ice over night and then another 1/4" during the day today. Yup, we got it!

We lost power here about 4 AM and it was off until about 10 or so. Poor K kept coming into my room (where I was bundled up in my bed) saying she was bored. LOL I told her to read or color or play a game, but nothing was helping. I don't think she would have made it in the pioneer days :)

Here are a few pictures of the trees and such around here. It's beautiful, but really scary standing outside and hearing all the limbs breaking and the ice creaking all around.

This one was taken through my bedroom window. We have another icicle on that side of the house that's even longer and thicker!

Here's a tree on the south side of the house. You can see some of the broken branches from the Evergreen that's next to it.

Just a close-up of one of the same tree. It's SO pretty like this.

And lastly, the bush right out front. I just thought it looked really cool all capped in ice.


Welcome to my new an improved blog. I hope you can find something useful, insightful, humorous or just plain silly here. Enjoy!
