I can't believe we had two winter storms within two weeks of each other.
Seldom do we get one winter storm, but two and so close together... Why that is unheard of in these parts.
There was no snow this time. At least not for our neighborhood. 30 miles north got 6 to 8 inches of snow. All we got was freezing rain.
And with tree branches falling all over the neighborhood from the weight of the ice, we ended up losing power.
Some of our neighbors got their power back this morning. Others are still waiting.
Shouldn't be too long for the rest of the neighborhood though. All the ice is gone and they sky is a beautiful blue. Other than all the branches down throughout the neighborhood no one would know we just had a spectacular ice storm.
It is also my February Finish for "A Lovely year of Finishes". I quilted it using my current favorite design of swirls and feathers.
I put this quilt as my February finish because I had plans for it to go to a friend this month and wanted to make sure it got done on time.
Everything sure is beautiful encased in ice, but it sure does cause a lot of havoc.
My poor Birch tree will never be the same.
The ice was just too thick for a lot of trees.
