We were some of the lucky ones. While hundreds of thousands were out of power, we were snuggled safely in our cozy home. And while many flights were cancelled and the runways closed much of the day, Erin's flight from New York somehow managed to land without delay.
We are definitely counting our blessings, but we did have one casualty. The tall evergreen tree near our front porch succumbed to the weight of the ice.
The corner of our roof kept it from falling entirely. No branches have been lost but the roots are coming up out of the ground. I'll be sad to see it go.
This will be one of those storms we'll be talking about for years to come.
