Winter Storm


I took this photo on Friday afternoon...right in the middle of a very bad storm....sometimes we have power....sometimes we have no phone service (which affects the computer)...we've been turning it off due to power surges...everything is a mess....the high winds caused many limbs and branches to fall...which are scattered everywhere....sometimes it snows....then turns to heavy rain...it's a total 'mud pit' out in the yard....we are getting a break today...but its cloudy and dark...another storm is due tomorrow....the wind was so strong that the huge old pine trees were swaying and singing in the wind....which I love...I sat outside all bundled up on the back porch watching mother nature do her thing....
I'm taking down the Christmas tree today...wrapping each glass ornament in tissue.....hope all my California friends weathered the storm okay........I know lots of people are still without power.

We had lots of rain and wind, and this morning there was snow on the mountains around us but nothing at our elevation. I've been wondering about you and what you've been doing. Haven't heard much from you in awhile. Stay warm and safe.

Oh I've been thinking about you since the storms came in and we watched Tahoe on TV. Bad stuff. Glad you are OK.
My Christmas is all down, and now I'm trying to clean out closets.

Glad you're okay Vicci! Here in the Northeast, it's going to be in low 60's today! Then some storms coming and a drastic drop in temps. Mother Nature is starting the New Year off with a bang for all. Stay safe.

The wold west coast has been getting such big and bad storms this year. Luckily they loose some of their punch when they reach here, but the west and south east are suffering as is the wildlife in the mountains there.

I'm so thinking about you and concerned to be sure. I read that El Dorado Co. has been declared to be a disaster area (or some such term)due to black outs from this endless weather. Tomorrow it is supposed to lighten up (sunshine) finally. This has been a long haul. Email me when you read this to tell me you are OK and my Uncle Bruce is warm and healthy too.

Love ya Cuz
