We woke up to an iced over world this morning… and no power.
John and I started fires right away because the house was cold and when I called the hydro line they said the power could be off until 11pm. Thankfully our power came back on a little while later. It was still off in other areas.
School buses were cancelled everywhere this morning, and most schools are closed.
We went outside to survey the damage and to put some food out for the birds. We were able to get another feeder open, but this one was frozen shut.
Birch trees are pretty resilient, so hopefully these two come back. They say the worst thing you can do is try to knock off the ice because you could cause damage to the tree. We’ll just have to hope that these two bounce back on their own.
This purple sand cherry bush looked very pretty covered in ice, but the ground was extremely slippery so we had to be careful when we walked around. Even the frozen grass was crunching below our feet.
Here’s some ice accumulation on the back deck… and there were icicles hanging from everything.
The back garden plants just froze in their winded positions.
It was so calm out that everything seemed frozen in time, and we haven’t heard or seen one vehicle go by yet. Our road looks like a sheet of ice.
Hopefully this is Old Man Winter’s last blast. Someone really needs to give him a good talkin’ to!!!
Thanks so much for reading! Have a wonderful weekend!
