and... Then There Was ICE!

Hi Everyone...
The first part of this is yesterdays post...

We have been without power for the last 40 hours,
but thanks to our generator,
snug and cozy...

we are all back on now,
at the end of the post I'll share today's new pics...

My soft blanket of snow has turned hard...


Now a world encased in ice...

each tree sparkles like a chandelier...


harsh yes,
but BEAUTIFUL!



today my lady looks sad,
frozen tears...


she watched through the night,
as the ice formed
and the trees began to break...


perfectly preserved rose hips...






--------------------------
Today I took these pics...


the park across the street...


in the quiet stillness of the night
you could hear
the explosion of each tree...

cracking and crashing...


I saw hundreds of trees just like this...


a neighbors home...

There is a lot of clean up
but nature is resilient!

and there will be lots of wood chip mulch
for the spring!

and my little town is cozy again tonight,
and it is a comfort to hear the furnace purring...

I will be sharing at...
and

Stay Warm!
