It's a crunchy day at my place...


Hi! I am taking some time off from blogging to deal with life. I fell Friday and landed on my thumb, I broke the bone under my knuckle. This slows down my typing speed as I have limited mobility of my left hand fingers. We are buried under 4 inches of ice and had lost electricity. Although we have finally regained power it is unstable and the lights blink on and off. We also lost many tree limbs that are covering our back deck and yard that will be cleaned up soon. Weather forecast says more ice and snow storm is in store for tomorrow and again this weekend. The whole family is home today and I am actually sending this blog entry via my cell phone. I hope all my favorite bloggers are doing well and I will to be back soon (my left hand will be casted for the next six weeks).

This is a picture of a branch that fell from our tree Sunday.

The above picture was taken by Melissa. I think it is beautiful, but it is also a close up of the branches that fell on our deck.

Dori, so sorry to hear of your thumb injury. That's some awful weather you've had to deal with too and that's terrible about your power situation as well. I'm sending good thoughts your way that the upcoming weeks will be better :)

Dori, I'm sorry to hear about your fall & thumb! I'm hoping for a full & speedy recovery. The snow/ice is very pretty & quite powerful (or powerless as the case may be!) Take care of eachother there in winter-land! :o)

I am so sorry to hear about your thumb. I have been in an ice storm before and I get how pretty and how hard it can be. Here's to hoping we hear from you soon.

I hope you recover soon, Dori! That sounds like a very painful injury- with the added stress of power outages, fallen tree branches, etc. Ugh! From one snowy locale to another, I wish you healing and sunshine!
Come back as soon as you can. =)

Yikes! Sorry to hear about your thumb, hope it heals quickly. We're having our share of nasty weather here too, driving to work this morning was no picnic!

Melody said...

What a mess!!.. but is sure is pretty... stay warm!

Carrie™ said...

Dori! I hope you're not suffering too terribly with your thumb. Ouch! Your pictures remind me of the Quebec ice storm a few years back. It is extremely dangerous with falling ice, slipperiness (which you know!), downed power lines etc. Do be cautious & safe. I'll keep you in my prayers for a speedy recovery & a speedy melt.

Vanessa said...
