Fire and Ice

Ice and sleet hit North Texas Thursday night.  Of course we were not prepared. We lost power in the wee hours of Friday morning.  Most of the day was spent bundled up in layers of clothing, stocking caps, gloves and blankets in front of the fire.......
 



Not wanting to venture out, 
these are views from our windows......













Tree limbs starting cracking and breaking off from the weight of the ice .....





So thankful for wonderful neighbors who took us in and gave us a warm bed for the night!

Glad to know you are okay - and that you had a place to go for the night! Your pictures are beautiful. I am sure this makes you thankful that at least you don't deal with this kind of weather often. Keep warm if you can!
