So Very Grateful...

No photos today.
I am so very grateful for so much right now...
The generator that is keeping us warm and sane.
The giant 80 foot top of the Cedar tree that came crashing down just missing our home. Split and impailed itself across the lawn and the driveway.
Our chain saw to clear enough of the driveway to be able to get out in an emergency.
The snow which has quit for a few hours.
All of the trees we were able to unload the snow from and save from breaking off.
Most of all I am so very grateful for my wonderful husband who is such a hard worker and keeps us safe.
Hope everyone else is safe, warm and grateful for the little things in life.
Must go for now as we are without power for several days and must save our generator for sort periods of need. We are on our own well so without power there is no water which means a lot of withouts...
I look forward to getting back to reading all of your blogs and catching up when we get power in a few days (hopefully).
Too cold to create...

  3. I'm so glad that the tree missed you and your house! That must have been a scary sound when it fell. Thank goodness you have a chainsaw, generator and most importantly a husband who's handy. Stay warm and have a nice cup of hot chocolate in the meantime.

  5. Oh my, thank goodness you are safe and that you have a generator. We don't have one and that makes me nervous! Stay safe, stay as warm as you can. Do you stockpile water for emergencies? We have some containers filled with water just in case.

    Take care!

  11. Yikes! My goodness that must have been a big scare - you certainly do have a lot to be thankful for! I am so glad that tree missed your house and that you were able to get the snow off the rest. I hope power and water are restored for you before too long; it can't be easy but you seem like the resilient sort. Take care!

  12. So happy to read you and yours are okay! Glad the tree missed your house. A couple of years ago we had a tree that didn't - devastating and I was in the room at the time.

    Hope your water and power get back soon. I'm thinking of you! xxoo
