Woke up Saturday morning to a very dark house. The power was off!!! There was about 8 inches of heavy wet snow on the ground and power lines down, trees down, oh, what fun.
We have a big generator so we were OK and two space heaters in the house that run without electric. Mike just had to go to the building to power up the generator.
The first picture was taken yesterday afternoon, beautiful blue skies and some sunshine that the boys had to nap in the sun. Still cold out though but beautiful!
The one above was taken this afternoon when it started to snow again. When I snapped this one the snow looked like huge down feathers floating down out of the sky. Then it started raining! UGH! We are supposed to have freezing rain then more snow up to 8 more inches....enough already!
This was taken on Saturday, the trees were coated with ice and then snow. Click on the picture above to see the trees that are bent over and look like willow trees. I don't know how many tress came down.
The solar candles hanging on the hooks were blown sideways by the wind then froze that way. As the snow piled up. The wind was blowing from behind the house, which was strange; it usually comes down the creek.
As the day warmed up a bit the snow started sliding off the steel roof, hitting the second roof with a thud! (this was taken from our bedroom window.)
Above is my road cleaning crew of one. Mike and his tractor and blade; he hasn't been out on the tractor for awhile so he was having fun cleaning the driveway and the road in front of the house and buildings.
The power was off for 35 hours, I hope that this storm won't take down any power lines.
Oh, yes, the rug is finished but I have to steam it and bind it, then I will post the finished work.
