Beautiful "Aftermath" Of The Nov. 8 /05 "Ice-Storm"..........

Yesterday afternoon, the weather turned "ugly", with a heavy snow warning in effect, and temperatures dropping. Well, the rain started, which changed to freezing snow, the temperature dropped below freezing, and the winds increased to about 80 KM/HR. A good evening to be inside. Well, the wind howled all night, the power went out twice and was restored, the snow quit, and the morning was quite picturesque!

Notice how the aftermath of a storm can sometimes be picturesque, with no sarcasm intended towards, and my condolences to, anyone affected by "Katrina and Rita". I am still waiting for Emergency Services to build up my dike, as they were supposed to have started, but it has been too wet for them to operate on landscaped property. Stay tuned................
