More ice storm pics and bothy SAL update

We were without power for 3 1/2 days.  We were lucky to have the woodstove and generator, the thing we missed the most was running water.  Our generator wasn't big enough to handle the water system.  I'm pretty sure we are going to remedy this by next winter.  My parents got their power on a day sooner than us so I was able to take shower there.

I really thought the top of my birch tree was going to break!  Thankfully it didn't.

I was able to do some stitching on my Bothy threads project.
Wishing everyone a Happy New Year!

Ice Storm

Well, we have been without power now since Saturday at 3am from a bad ice storm.  I'll have better pictures once I can download them from my SLR.  We are lucky we have a woodstove and a generator so we have our fridge and a small TV hooked up but no running water.  Believe it or not I've been able to do a little stitching with a flashlight :0)

The hydro companies App says today at noon we will have power, crossing my fingers!
