I woke up to a mess today, a winter wonderland that looked pretty, but was in fact, doing lots of damage.
Tree branches have broken under the weight of heavy snow piled on top of leaves popped out too early, climbing rose bushes have toppled to the ground, lilacs are bent and buried, and underneath the snow, the yard is flooded.
I have been out twice already to knock snow off branches that are groaning from this weight they cannot bear. Ugh.
Mother Nature comes to call once again, and all we can do is clean up when she is through with us.
So far, at least I still have power, there are many who do not. Keeping my fingers crossed on that one.
My naughty kitten went outside and came back thirty seconds later with a poor sparrow in his mouth. No doubt the little bird was too distracted by his search for food in this weather to notice the presence of a cat.
All in all, not the best way to start a week.
Here’s hoping it gets better from here.
