Hello Friends! How are you?
How was your weekend?
How was your weather?
As you can see...
We got another great big snow storm.
Our area was one of the hardest hit during this storm.
We got over 2 feet of snow!
I took these with my phone as I wanted to
show you how bad it really is out here.
This was taken off my top deck!
This is my back yard.
Our poor trees were bent over
and some of our branches snapped.
We were out there early Saturday morning trying to
get as much heavy snow off our branches as we
could so it wouldn't cause much damage to our trees.
This is the front of my MIL house,
very deep snow...
Can you find the wheelbarrow?
Another view of our back yard.
See the trees....we were all upset
and a few tears were shed.
But, we continued to work together
to get the snow knocked off.
As we were outside I prayed.
I prayed for our trees.
I prayed and praised God for the moisture.
I prayed for safety for my hubby and son as they
weren't home during the brunt of the storm.
This was taken several hours after we
banged snow off the trees
and the wind started.
Most of the trees looked more perky, well more upright.
Perky..not so much! LOL.
While my father in law was outside,
he was praying and God reminded him that
only the strong survive!
This is such a good reminder to have.
Especially in times like these.
We fight and we endure.
We become strong in Christ!
We. Never. Give.Up!
Am I right?
As for an update from our view this Sunday:
We still have a ton of snow.
Lots of drifts some very high
others just a few inches.
Our road plows are stuck!
So, no getting out on our roads today.
2 of my boys and his friend went to try
and help people in town with down trees.
(Thankfully my oldest has four-wheel drive and a winch!)
I helped hubby gather wood for our wood stove.
Talk about a work out!
My in laws tried to go to church, but got stuck!
Thank goodness, hubby was home to go rescue them!
And...well...I'm just enjoying the warmth of my home
and a window view of the snow...
Maybe I'll make some cookies...
I hope you have a delightful week!
Thank you for stopping by...
Hugs & Blessings,
