FREEZING RAIN WARNING IN EFFECT
Again. This is getting past the point of being funny. I am particularly annoyed with the whole thing because for the last week or so, and for some time in the future, I am family chauffeur, fire maker, cook and bottle washer. My husband, poor guy, has a pinched nerve in his back and is pretty well totally incapacitated. I think we got the bulk of the medical appointments over today, though, so we may be able to ride out the next day and a half (length of predicted weather inversion). We have plenty of food and good books and are not totally dependent on the electricity. Although, if the lines go down, I will have to run the generator too. Oh, joy.
The one thing this miserable series of warm fronts and freezing rain has done is to turn our local woods and roads into a spectacle. It looks like a Disney set for the Snow Queen - huge blobs of snow frozen to all the trees and fences, large and small. Lovely. And most of the inevitable breakage around here has been of small branches. Not nearly the damage of the '98 storm that took out 60% of the limbs of the maples in the sugar bush.
In the meantime, I will get back to blogging as soon as I get the Christmas cards done - that is, I will if the ice does not bring down the Internet connection.
