Ice Storm

Gotta love new England weather. It was 62 degrees on Tuesday! Wednesday day it was very windy and starting to get cold and Thursday it rained. So last night that rain turned into a very dangerous ice storm. We lost power and heat sometime in the middle of the night. It has been practically raining tree branches for hours. It is quite a mess. Bryant was happy to not have school today and to have Mom and Dad home. Both of our work places were closed due to inclement weather. Here are a few pics I took earlier today. This is looking out our front door:

Here is one view of our backyard. Lots of ice:

Another view with just some of the fallen branches:

I had to throw in this happy picture. One of the sales reps from my company sent it to me this week. Just a little Christmas spirit, 3000 miles away. It makes me smile:

Our power is back on now,and we have heat. Yay!! Tomorrow it will probably look like nothing ever happened. It sure was one heck of a way to get a 3 day weekend. Happy Friday!!

Dawn, that is crazy weather! 62 and then ice. Glad you have your heat back on and you had a day off. It is days like this where I get antsy and want to get out and about. Stay safe and out of the way of falling branches!

Glad you have your heat and power back! We lose ours frequently in the winter too. Perfect weather for scrapping though :)
