The ice on the trees was beautiful.
When you run a retreat center it is important to be prepared for anything. Knowing there was a possibility we could lose power we brought up extra wood for the fireplace. Even though the blowers wouldn't work without electricity we could open the doors and have some heat...
Thankfully I had stored up 5 bags of ice melt and it was a good thing cause the porch totally iced over.
My guests enjoyed the fireplace even though the ice storm probably messed up their plans. Tonight will be another cold night with lows about 7 degrees. Hopefully, we won't lose electricity again and tomorrow life will begin to get back to normal. Whatever normal is for this part of the country. Spring please hurry and come to my world! I miss you so!
