4 DAYS ‘TILL CHRISTMAS!!!!
A couple of days ago (morning of December 18th) we got a really bad ice storm!! EVERYTHING was covered in ice!! It put us (and a lot of other people) out of electricity for a while. We had a generator (THANKFULLY!!) so we could still do a few things. But we had to have on only the necessary lights, so we did some things by candlelight, or in the dark. We were out of electricity for about 17 hours! But I guess a few other places are still out of it …so we don’t really have it too bad!!
We took a ton of pictures, but I cannot post them all on here…so I’ll have to decide on the best ones. The first one was taken the day before (17th), it was really snowing! The roads were slick and we got about 2 inches! Today (Sunday), we are getting a lot of wind that is knocking down twigs and ice! It is dangerous to walk under a tree (which is almost impossible with the amount of trees we have : ). It is somewhere around -13 degrees! And very windy too! Brrr!!
~The back sidewalk and the driveway covered in ice, with the barn in the back
~This is our big bush that is in the front yard, it is supposed to be taller and "bushier", but with all the ice on it, it sank down.
~All of our pine trees look like this!
~The destruction begins!! With all the weight of the ice, quite a few branches fell down!
~The big branch in the back on the ground is what you are supposed to be seeing One of our clothesline posts fell too!
~I thought this was hilarious!!! Someone set a paper bag outside the day before and the next morning it looked like this
Lately, we have all been sewing and the electricity keeps going off and on, off and on, some off’s are longer than others. And that makes sewing difficult!! When it comes back on, there is a rush to see how many stitches we can sew before the electricity goes off again I have already lost this post once due to the electricity going off
