So Beautiful...yet So Destructive

Like many here on he East Coast, we've
been hit with major snowstorms
this year.
 It's all so beautiful to look at.
 The house looks so warm and cozy.
And the gorgeous pictures you
can take still don't compare
to the real life beauty
surrounding you.
 But then you see the destruction.
 The fallen branches that are so
strong they break telephone poles
in half, causing you to lose all
power and heat for four days
while the temperatures drop
below freezing.
 Luckily, we have my parents to take us
in while Ted, along with chills and a
fever, keeps the house somewhat heated
with a kerosene heater - just enough
to keep our pipes from freezing.
 So glad that week's over and now
looking to somehow get this mess
cleaned up. In the meantime, we
uploaded the pictures.
It still is pretty, isn't it?
