Winter Hit My Woods

Winter has hit my woods.
The snow was nice to see for a while.
We don't get it very often.
Then the ice storm arrived.
This is what it did to all my trees.
The cracking in the middle of the night
was the weirdest sound ever.
Scary .. really.
Trees broke all over my yard.
We couldn't get out of our driveway.
At least twelve trees went down.
Mostly Alders but a big fur went down in the back yard.
Power was out.
Cable and phone too.
Now, almost a week later,
I still have piles of snow all over my yard.
The trees are still everywhere
but have been sawed and moved
so we can get out into the real world.
My front tree is still hanging over
like it did in the freeze.
We hope it will survive.
The Alders I don't care as much about.
And, thus I am tired of Winter
and I know it's just started.
Spring can show up any time
as far as I'm concerned.

So glad that you survived the ice storm. I know they can be very bad. We have snow here but not very much. The next few days are going to be cold but no precip. Take care and Keep smiling.
