Spiritual sustenance, naturally.

More photos! Last night we received about 10 inches of heavy, wet snow. Because the leaves are still on most of the trees, the weight brought down tree limbs. There were a couple of large tree limbs (one oak, one maple) that hit the roof, with many smaller limbs down all around. Brave husband climbed up on the roofs to remove the limbs, while I handed up saws, etc.

Below is my hand, as I cleared snow off the yew. You can see how deep the snow is.

A photo shot skyward at the snow on the maple leaves. With the sun shining on it, the snow has been melting quickly. See the birds in the upper right corner?

The last time we experienced a winter storm here in October was in the 1980’s. We were without power for days, melting snow for water and cooking on the wood stove. So far we have not lost power with this storm, though the lights flickered a few times.

So, what does Mother Nature have in store for us next?

  1. Good grief! What I wouldn’t give to be there. It all looks so beautiful, yet I know there is damage to this summer’s growth on tender plants. Mother Nature answers to no one. And, “It’s not nice to fool with Mother Nature.” I’m afraid global warming, which I personally believe in, has turned our weather patterns into a roulette wheel. I imagine we’ll all be surprised at what comes next.
