DEVASTATION!

This is what we woke up to! Before we could even feed the cats in the kennel, Josiah had to blaze a trail through yet more downed Mimosa limbs.Finally, Carissa was able to get food and fresh water through to Samson and Abigail. Our birch trees are now half their original height!
That's our driveway!
Our wonderful neighbor came over with his power saw and helped Josiah clear the branches blocking the driveway, while Jeremiah, Carissa, and I hauled them back to the burn pile through snow over our boots! The same awesome neighbor also loaned us a spare generator when our electricity went out and ran a hose over to our holding tank when we ran out of water with no way to get the tank trailer out of the snow let alone haul it full up our hill! Another neighbor plowed our driveway. So by the end of the day, that helpless feeling was replaced with gratefulness, as God sent the help we so desperately needed. We feel so blessed.

Oh my! Is there never an end to this for you? We are dealing with flooding over this direction and even our tall snow man is long, long gone.

Wow! You guys really got nailed!
Was Dennis able to get to work? We still have snow on the ground, but it is slowly melting. We didn't get the ice (and damage) like you did.
