Well Folks, we are surviving the icy blast. We are much more fortunate than many in Arkansas, since we didn't have any damage to our home, nor did our family. We are campers from way back, and like the song says, "Country folks can survive"! We easily got an inch of ice on EVERYTHING. There's the love of my life clearing our driveway. He also cleared the neighbor's driveway AND singlehandedly cleared the county road we live on. He is a handy fella to have around!

The ice can be as beautiful as it can be troublesome and dangerous.

This is one of the (many, many) trees that we will have to cut down around our home. Tuesday night was eerie, the woods around us sounded like a war zone with all the popping and crashing of tree tops and limbs all night long. The good Lord kept us all safe, however, and for that I am very grateful!
The upside of all this ice is that I have had A LOT of crocheting time!!!
Stay warm, ya'll!!!

Glad you and David are doing OK after the big ice storm. We lost many trees and Steve spent the day cutting some up just to get out our road. i think we have enough firewood for the next 6 years!

Still no electricity at our house or the church. i am happy to be here in Tulsa because I DO miss a bath!!

I am praying for everyone there. I know it was a terrible sight...Steve showed me pictures. I hope to be home soon. Love Judy
