The week prior to the ice storm we had a good three inch snowfall. Again, not the norm around here. Anna played in the snow for the first time and it was fun and exciting for everyone. Being from New York, I'm used to the snow, but seeing things for the first time through the eyes of a child is just as magical as if I'd never felt a snowflake before.
These first pictures are from the snowfall a few weeks ago.
Now, on to the ice storm.
|Our beautiful front tree practically snapped in half from the weight of the ice. Multiple trees fell in our backyard.|
|Beautiful from the inside; treacherous from the outside.|
|No power; staying warm.|
|Fire and a cleared mantle with candles for some warmth and light.|
