More Ice Pictures…

January 14th, 2007

Wow… the freezing rain just doubled the ice overnight it seems.  It was quiet this morning walking outside… except for the crash! of tree brances in the distance, falling with the weight of ice.  The big Ash tree lost a giant limb…. Power has been on and off… coffee cups on the woodstove and thank goodness for the old propane stove in the basement- we still had a warm breakfast.  The lineman and power company employees are working overtime…  they get little credit it seems, but I so appreciate their dedication.  Here’s a few more pictures…

    nice icy photos in your blog. Here in Germany winter arrived with a bit of frost last night. It´s not grim and generators are perfectly working. Generally it´s too warm.
    I´ll come back soon.

    Hi Helene- Thank you for your reply! By the way- Magenbrot is my favorite Holiday treat :) I look forward to visiting Germany some day- I love the snow, but maybe I’ll come in the springtime!
