Just another Wintry Blast.....
Ice Divers Over 70 (IDOS)
This first one is for you, eh - DJan
Would you be a dear and come away from that pond
for just a few minutes.......
....skate down the road
and pick up a quart of milk at the store........
That's the fun side - now the rest of the story - ice storms have hit Atlantic Canada since last Friday, thousands without power. Trees are down, you cannot even walk in your yard without spikes on yer boots. Trees are down, branches are down or almost down, power lines have inches of ice coating them, until they get so heavy - we hear a crunch - OOOPS - another branch fell off neighbour's tree and downed yet another power line. We've had rain, freezing rain, ice pellets, then more rain, more freezing rain and more ice pellets and then more of all of that again. We are so lucky to still have power, although it keeps going out and returning - hastily I write this note, for I know not when it'll go out for good. All snowbanks are now ice banks - makes life interesting here in the Maritimes and hope we'll be thawed out soon. AND SO, the night before the night before Christmas - not a creature was stirring in our small town and the trees, and the power lines were all falling down.
