I think my neighbor's tree looks really cool!
I was very lucky. I discovered in the morning that I had lost power at least once during the night, but it was on when I woke up. I don't know if it flashed off and back on or if it was out for any length of time. I kept my TV on in my bedroom, so I'd know if power was out.
this is what my TV looked like from 10 am until around 4 pm today.
One thing I wasn't happy about was my cable and internet were knocked out for about 6 hours today. I do have a netbook, but my Fios connection was lousy! I was able to get on Facebook and read what was coming in, but I wasn't able to respond to anyone all day. Like being gagged while all this great conversation is going on all around you!
my walkway this morning. you can see why I stayed inside all day!
As the day went on, the temperature went above freezing, to about 40 degrees and quite a bit of the ice melted away. All morning long, I could hear loud cracks as branches fell off trees in my neighborhood. I could also hear ice falling off the trees on my property. I had small branches fall to the ground, but nothing major.
In other news, Punxatawny Phil, that craft old groundhog, did not see his shadow this morning and legend has it that we'll be having an early Spring. Yeah. I'll believe that when I see it! I won't be breaking out the short sleeve shirts, capris and sandals any time soon!
