the aftermath...

our street this morning...
this tree fell.
the whole tree.

this second one fell
right in our neighbor's yard,
luckily it didn't hit anything.


we are hoping this group will be ok,
although my husband just came in
and said
branches are still falling
this morning from the weight
even with no wind.

i can't tell you how eerie
it was to be out there this morning
with the stillness and the silence
and the sound of
ice cracking and tinkling
and the branches heavy and ominous
in their
beauty.

Okay...suddenly the almost constant rain of the past few weeks doesn't seem so bad. It's good you were able to stay inside and warm yesterday.
