Feels like......


-14 And it is -9......so, not nice at all. Yesterday power went out 2 times, first time for 4 hours, second time for 1,5 hour, but man, did it get cold in the house!! The roads are pretty clean, it's snowing a bit now, but what I don't like at all, are the trees....... filled with and heavy from the ice, they hang down towards the roads. The power cables are covered with ice too, so pretty heavy, and that causes the power outage at some places. My kids are at school, but some towns still don't have any power and those schools there are closed.
The car still is like a popcicle, Henk tried to get of as much ice as he could, and tonight we're going to put it in the garage, that's what a garage is for after all.

Some branches from the tree in the backyard are hanging pretty low, and seem extremely heavy... well, let them break off, I don't care, as long as they don't fall on the house it's fine by me! I saw some stuff on tv this morning, and there were a couple of houses pretty damaged by falling trees... can you imagine how that looks like... well, awfull I think!
Hopefully the power stays on today, it's nice and warm now, and I sure like to keep it that way!

Jeetje, wat een mooie foto's. Alleen dat het met zoveel gevaar en zonder stroom moet:S Dat is niet zo leuk natuurlijk.

Het wordt hier vandaag (17/1) weer een graad of 10 met natuurlijk de bekende regen.
