Many thanks for all your lovely posts last week! As always, all of you did a magnificent job!
What happens when there is an ice storm where people hardly can remember the last time it snowed …
Luckily I had published the All Seasons post on Saturday before the ice storm hit and we had no electricity. Even our cell phones did not work (we have solar storage for them).
It seems the wind turbines of the United Nations (??) in the West of the state had frozen up, causing the providers to turn to rolling blackouts. Every time the power came back on, I ran to the computer. so I still could reply to you, Yay!
Happy the ice storm is over, but we are still dealing with the aftermath.
Since already the first day of this storm caused a big pile up of cars and big trucks, where several people died, and 60 people were brought to the hospital, we thought it to be dangerous on the road and stayed inside for 5 days.
Our first shopping trip after, we only could buy cookies, because the shelves for the vegetables, fruit, bread, and meat were totally empty. Then found the biggest grocery store (Walmart) closed because the pipes had bursted. They promised “next week!”
Checked the Aldi, a small grocery store, and saw a line of people to the corner, waiting. Since we had a slow process of just getting to the stores because of flashing traffic lights, we decided to go home.
Refigured the menu for some “creative” meals next week. No worries:)

These are from last year’s snow in Northern California
You may remember that last year one of the 5 power
outages we had was caused by a 60 feet
tree that fell across the front yard,
on top of the electricity line.
The same tree cut up by hubby’s chain saw. We are such city dwellers that when our son, who lives in Holland
heard his father had purchased one,
he asked to send a photo!
Often deer disappear from he scene when snow comes,
going to lower elevations, so this is one of a kind!
Cannot remember the month, but you can see the blooms in the trees while we got another dump of snow!
Love the stark contrast seen, on the corner of our off-grid street.
Never told you, because that info might have been a little too much for some of you.
(Off grid means: one lane, no paved street but gravel, no street lanterns, no garbage trucks or snow plows are coming by).
