Glad to hear you're okay. Sorry about your trees. How's your basement?
Didn't you get flooded last year?

Subject: [CHAT] More strange fall weather

I don't suppose anyone else was snowed in over the weekend as we were.
We had eight inches, and were without power for three days.  Not fun.
We
have a small generator that supplies us with heat, refrigeration and
water, 
but
no lights.  Thank goodness for that, though - a hot shower is one of the

world's
greatest luxuries.  We didn't run it all the time - just long enough at
a 
time to
get done what needed to be done.  Even that required filling the tank
with
gasoline, which was awkward for tottery oldsters like us, but we
managed.
 
The temperatures were not too bad - above freezing most days. We had had
a load of firewood delivered last week, so that helped, even though the
wood
was hard to get to through the snow.
 
Much breakage of trees, since they were all still in full leaf.  We
haven't 
been
able to get down to the back to see just how bad it is, but we can see
major
limbs down from the Scholar Tree, and I'm pretty sure my curly willow is

down.
The top is out of the crabapple tree, and a big branch is down from a
grey
birch.  Can't tell about the Kousa dogwood, but it may have lost some
limbs,
too.  Oh well.  
 
Now if the snow will just melt I can get the rest of my bulbs planted.
The 
flower beds are surely finished.
 
Hope noone else had weather problems.
 
Auralie
