Well, after pulling through the wicked Polar Vortex, Mother Nature figured we hadn’t suffered enough so she sent along ice storms for us to try to survive. We did. Not without roaring treetop winds of more than 40 mph, power outages, travel restrictions – in other words another prime example of why winter is one miserable season not fit for man nor beast.
Right now the sun is shining. It’s cold, make no mistake, but the sun is actually shining. This in itself seems to be a minor miracle. Lots of people still without power/heat/TV/Internet. Hats off to all the hard working folk who work out in the weather we have to endure to restore our utilities – those precious utilities that we so take for granted until they’re gone. This winter can’t go away fast enough!
