This is NOT Spring!

Here is some of the aftermath of Thursday night's ice storm...


We have been without hydro electricity since Thursday night....
And I have the computer hooked up to the gas generator right now....

So I can make my a post, but not about quilting - unfortunately.
It was quite interesting and beautiful to wake up to this ice covered world....
And there has been no school for the kids since then, or today, either....
The ice melted later that day and released the trees and every other surface from its hard, cold shell....
Believe it or not - and this is a first for me - I am really looking forward to being able to do the dishes!

I hope and pray that today will be the day we get power back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow Lorna. We haven't seen an ice storm like that in a few years. Like your ice-encrusted tree, we had ice covered trees & cars for a few days but it was from water blown off Lake Geneva. Beautiful pictures but I hope you thaw out soon!
