This has been the weirdest winter so far. Lots of snow at Thanksgiving & then barely any for the entire month of December. Then yesterday we were really hit! We lost power for 4 hrs last night. Thank goodness for quilts & a fireplace! Our lights keep dimming this morning so I sure hope we don't lost power again. We have a lot of broken branches & it appears our neighbors do as well. It is continuing to come down so I suspect it will be a few days before we will be able to clean up some of the mess.
This is the view of our backyard. You can see how much snow fell by looking at the of our patio table.
This is a view of our front yard toward the MO River. You can't see the river itself because it is down over the hill, but there are lots of tree branches down in that area.
