Blizzard of 2012 - Christmas Tree Down

We were in the blizzard area that you've been hearing about on the weather reports.  It started snowing and blowing here sometime between Christmas night and Wednesday morning and continued through the day until that evening.  We had a little over 7 inches of snow here, it was cold, and there was a lot of blowing and drifting.

My tomato cage Christmas tree that I wrote about here was one of the casualties of the storm.  The pot was full of dirt, so it must have taken a big gust of wind to take it off the step and over.  It looks bad, but after we got it upright again, there was only one broken ornament on the garland.  I was going to take an "after" photo, but my fingers were too cold to push the buttons on to the camera.

You can see one of the big drifts in this photo.  

The big blizzard of '78 lasted a lot longer and there was twice as much snow.  Still it was really nice to be inside during this one.

We had a nice Christmas and hope you did, too!

Thanks for visiting!
