Here's my proof:
Last night's ice and wind took down this big ol' maple in our front yard about midnight--and I totally slept through it!
The Husband, who was watching TV in the basement, thought we were having an earthquake.
Even our neighbor heard it at his house.
It didn't just fall over--it was uprooted.
This big beauty was really a landmark in our front yard.
Our house is never going to look the same. The itty-bitty one we planted a few years ago to be its successor just hasn't earned the glory of a tree with a 4-foot diameter.
How are you fairing in the ice and snow?
We hunkered down and stayed home today. I'm blessed (?) to be able to work from home. So, I've done about 4 hours worth today. Beyond that, we played Wii and worked out and napped. Might be able to get used to this pace! I just hope this doesn't go one for many more days!
I had the foresight to stock up on milk and fruit and stuff. I filled water jugs so we'll have water if the power goes out. We have plenty of gas for the generator, which will get the well pump going again, if we need it. We also have plenty of dry firewood stock-piled. (Obviously, we'll have even more come spring!!)
My only real concern is running out of toilet paper.Now that would be a family emergency!!
