Careful what you wish for....

We had a fun snow day on Wednesday
but by Thursday morning things were looking a little different...

trees were snapping
(this is our tree in the front yard...what you can't see to the left is the neighbors truck it just missed)

plants were covered in a layer of ice

our snowman got a frozen runny nose

a layer of ice covered our world

many neighborhoods lost power...we were one of the lucky few who did not
we did lose cable and internet access for awhile
my Mom has SO many trees down on their property (some on their roof) and as of last night were still without power

school was cancelled for the rest of the week

and thankfully today the temperature has warmed and things are beginning to thaw.
