We just got our butts kicked by 4 feet of snow in 2 days! Still haven't any power but coping nicely with a little help from friends. We are lucky. At least we didn't get stuck on 84 for 12 hours! Very sad about the pear tree. She is a good 65 years old and I hope losing that big limb won't be the end of her. Anyway, I won't be getting any medals for knitting olympics this year. Chop wood, carry water.
