Its time for another ♥ I Heart Macro Sunday! ♥
The big snow storm that hit us in late January has affectionately been dubbed Snowmageddon in the press! First we had 11 inches of snow in 24 hours, then we had freezing rain, which coated everything with a heavy layer of ice.
The ice was followed by a windstorm with gusts up to 60 mph. Whole trees snapped under the weight of the ice and the force of the wind.
The ornamental cherry trees that line our long driveway were severely damaged. A tree toppled down at the end of our road and landed on the overhead electrical wires.
We were without electricity for 3 and a half days—brrr! We live in a rural area and are on well water, which is pumped to the house via an electric pump, thus we were without, heat, light, telephone, running water or flushing toilets for those 3 and a half days. We were entirely snowed in for the first two days, so we couldn’t even drive to a warm restaurant for food.
The stuff in our freezer was melting, so my husband gathered up the thawing chicken, and made barbecued chicken soup! Not many people can claim to have eaten barbecued soup! He also made barbecued hot tea for us. I took these pictures when the snow had just started. My husband took the picture of the downed tree (admittedly not a macro shot), that zapped our electricity.
