Ice Storm 2008:






We were hit in Upstate NY with quite an ice storm on Thursday. The storm wreaked havoc across the area, downing power lines, breaking limbs on trees and creating treacherous driving conditions. Todd and I went to a wonderful holiday party which was held in the dark! It was actually still very fun (despite no heat!). Who need heat when you have candles, a gas fireplace and cold appetizers (plus alcohol)!!!

I love the beauty of the ice. I am just glad that we didn't have any damage here at the house (especially to all the beautiful pear trees which we planted this summer).


Here are some of the photos from the storm's aftermath...

I'm thankful to hear that your family has come through the awful storms well. Ice storms create such immediate danger as well as long-term needs for repair!
