sounding like cracking rifle shots as more and more trees continued to fall victim to the ice. We still had power Tuesday night, but cringed as we heard the explosion of a couple transformers blowing. Wednesday we lost power and that night the devastation continued, and worsened. So many large trees were totally destroyed. It's really heart breaking, but we are well and healthy and that's what counts. We spent Friday and Saturday with the chain saw and a trailer. Cutting up fallen limbs and hauling them out of the driveway and in one part of the yard. When you see the enormous piles of debris it looks like we accomplished an awful lot, until you look at all that's left in the yard. Pictures below of just one part of our yard. We will be digging out and cleaning up for weeks to come.
Yesterday in the midst of a huge tangle of branches, I saw a patch of daffodils just about to burst open.
