pictures from last year, looked the same.
I just can not stay away from here,
oh how I have missed you,
I have been reading your blogs
but I can only comment on the new versions of blogger.
Does anyone have any ideas for me.
If you know what I could do I would appreciate
any information you can provide me.
Thanking you in advance.
Last Thursday morning I woke up,
no power, no cable, internet, or phone.
But that was nothing when I looked outside
I had a huge branch off of our big old oak tree
that had come down in the storm.
The storm was heavy wet snow, so not only did
the branch off the tree come down, but so did
two of the other lines....so when I went to let the dog out.
I was about to open the back door
and one of the lines had ripped some of the vinyl siding
and had slid about half way down the house,
part of it was touching the patio table,
it was still snowing and I was thinking,
I don't know if these lines are live or what.
So I had to put the dog in the front yard,
I kid you not, I go to the front door and I push on the door,
It did not budge, so I pushed harder, still nothing,
I thought to myself WTH,
pushed again and the door opened
there was wet heavy snow blocking the door.
In all my years I have never had that happen.
So the dog goes out, I get dressed to go borrow
the neighbors phone to call my husband..
(This is the line that came down
and you can see the big old tree at the back)
As I am walking I am hearing splat, splat, splat,
heavy wet snow falling off the trees,
falling on vehicles. The neighbors let me in,
had a nice visit and I called my husband,
not that he could do anything, but I just felt better having talked
to him. As I leave the neighbors house it was now raining,
I was soaked by the time I got across the street.
I grabbed the shovel to move some of the snow
from in front of the house.
And I shoveled and shoveled and shoveled,
When I was close to the back of the house,
I could see the huge part of the tree that had landed
on top of my pink car....my precious.
I could not get out to see if any damage had been done
because of the wires being down.
I just said a prayer,
made my way back into the house.
Thank goodness the power was on again.
Late the next day I had the phone, tv, and internet
up and running.
Still have one line down,
will call tomorrow,
It apparently is an old telus phone line.
And as fast as the heavy wet snow came, it was gone.
I had tulips that had just come up through the ground,
ahh the first sign of spring,
they may have froze.
And silly me I did not have my camera
charged, it was really beautiful.
Oh and my car, absolutely no damage.
I think because there was so much heavy
wet snow on it that when the branch broke
and came down that it just landed on the snow.
What a way to wake up, all turned out well,
Easter was very quiet here, wishing all of you
a Happy Blated Easter.
Until next time,
I hope you are having
Your Very Best Days,
