Broken branches, more snow and no power

                             We had a slight break in the snow so we cleared out the driveway and took some pictures.
                             We had a huge branch come down near the road, and some in the back.
                              Luckily nothing hit the house.  We have the generator running for a while to warm things up.  How many weeks until Spring?

Wow that is a lot of snow! Glad to hear none of those falling branches did any damage to your house.

Man, this is quite the year of brutal weather for you folks! I can deal with being snowbound (I did live in Alaska for 4 years), but I HATE the power being off. it seems the best pastimes need some juice to keep it going. I don't mean just the sewing machine, but that is a biggie. Hope things get better, soon!

Wow, the snow has really been hitting the States this year! And here we are with rain for the Olympics. It did start snowing a couple of days ago in the hills but they say it was too little too late. Stay warm. I hate power outages.

Sometimes I feel like standing outside and yelling, "Would it really be that hard to just send me some sunshine?"...having a lot of those day lately... LOL! Hope your out from all that white fluff soon. B=)

Oh, Kim... your snow look worse than our snow... maybe cause we've cut trees from around the house after one hit it.

I LOVE you Tisket A Tasket quilt. You've done such a nice job with it. I'm still plugging away on it. Nearly done with the applique on the 6th block.

Today I am planning on quilting... Hope your power comes back on soon.

Oh my word, you probably don't want to hear this but I think it looks so beautiful!! It snowed here once, in 2000, and everyone took four hundred photos... didn't settle on the ground though. Absolutely amazing, thank you for sharing!
