We missed the brunt of this ice storm as the 1 inch ice accumulations went to our south. The ice is starting to get old – now outside we have a layer of ice, covered by snow, covered by another layer of ice, topped off with another layer of snow.
This bird nest in a cherry tree has seen warmer days! Nonetheless, it was a beautiful landscape and all the schools were shut down.
There was a north wind for this event, last week’s was from the south, so at least the piles of ice are on different sides of the buildings. It was another good cooking day – baked turkey legs, squash with brown sugar, raisins, and nuts, wild rice casserole, and raspberry pie, with a couple of loaves of honey wheat bread thrown in for good measure!
