Ice Storm 2007

ICE, RAIN, and SNOW!


That's the caption all over the news this week! We had a terrible ice storm that knocked out a lot of power lines, including mine. Jeremy and I and the animals ( 2 dogs and a cat) were without power from Saturday around 2pm til Monday morning. YIKES!!! It was fun at first- playing board games by candlelight and watching a movie on my laptop under 6 blankets... BUT it got old! Sunday we went to get a hot breakfast to find nothing was open anywhere around us. We ended up 20 miles away in line for 20 minutes at McDonalds. As a vegetarian. McDonald's is the last place you want to end up! Let's just say it is over and I am so thankful! No school since we have no power- that's one good thing!!!!
I found out you can still make 1 inch squares by candlelight- here is a sneak preview of some of mine for an upcoming mail swap, I made over the cold icy weeeknd!

Beautiful! I also love the photo of the birdie feeder with the icicles. We have had tremendous snow here and I've tried to capture it on film, but it's all WHITE. Great work :) Kelli
