In the midst of the second ice storm for the year… the first came in January last winter, and now this week. Who knew we would have such doings before winter once again has come!? Strange combination of lots of rain and temperatures around the freezing point. It’s actually very beautiful… it looks like an icicle paradise everywhere. But it takes it’s toll on the plants and trees- many lose branches, and even break apart under the weight of ice. Which of course isn’t good for the power lines… We lost electric power for half the day and went to town for lunch and extra stuff. But the fire is going and the power’s back on for now- yippee! I remember writing about the storm in January… it took some time before I got the generator running, but it’s great to have when you need it. This storm is forecast to last a few days- so let’s hope everybody stays warm.
