It all began with
a few snowflakes . . .
How do I begin to tell you about our week? It started innocently enough with just a sprinkle of snowflakes on some fallen leaves and our Halloween pumpkin. Within a few hours, however, we were living in a winter wonderland!
The gentle snowfall rapidly became a terrible snow squall. When the storm ended 24 hours later, we were blanketed with 12+ inches of wet, heavy snow. Downed branches and broken tree limbs dotted the landscape and ripped power lines apart. Within hours we were left in the dark along with approximately 1/2 million other people in our area.
Fortunately, we sustained minimal property damage. We did have a fireplace to keep us warm, plenty of candles, water, hot water (believe it or not!), down blankets, and - most importantly - a cell phone. Our camping experience ended yesterday when the power popped back on. We're very fortunate - many people are still powerless almost an entire week later.
Needless to say, there's been no blogging, no new posts, no new art, etc., but I have several pieces in the works. I'll share them with you soon, but will use the next few days to regroup. I've missed everyone so much - It's good to be back in Blogland!
Warm wishes for a wonderful day!
