Ice Storm

Woke up this morning to the sounds of branches snapping
under the weight of the ice that covered them.
Outside it is a winter wonderland. Beautiful but deadly.
Many branches are touching the ground, they are so bent under the weight
of the ice on them.

Our road is icy, but once you get to the main road it is just wet
 because they have been heavily salted.
We went out & couldn't even buy any salt, they were sold out everywhere.
Some people are without power & may not get it back till after Christmas day!
My Mom's condo is running on generator power.

Thank goodness we have power.
Here are some pictures of the world outside our house.

Everything is encased in layer of ice.
Hopefully we don't get any more of this freezing rain or more trees
will be damaged.  : (

Photo with Santa 2013

Well since the boys are away at university, we took our other son
to get a photo taken with Santa.  : )
