As I sit typing this I can hear the ice and sleet hitting the windows. We are currently under an ice storm warning and I am grateful to be in my warm and cozy home!
Through out the day the ice has slowly been building. This is on my clematis.
This morning a few branches were lost from the pine trees. The neighbor across the street lost part of their tree. We are thankful that we only lost a few branches.
I don't think I will be hanging laundry out any time soon!
Chuck has been in and out through out the day and he called me out to hear the crack of the trees as they are trying to move. We anticipate that at some point we will lose power.
We have prepared as much as we can.
The lamps have been filled.
The generator is gassed and ready to go. Having your whole family home bound is not a bad thing. Chuck graciously cleaned the living room carpet.
There are plenty of things to keep us busy. So much that we could be busy for days and days. There are games to play, books to read and there is always cleaning! I know that this is a large storm and I hope that no matter where you are you are keeping warm and safe.
I hope you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!
