I should have REALLY knocked on wood...

About five minutes after my last post, our power went out. We were lucky that it was only off for about 2 1/2 hours, just long enough for the novelty of candles to wear off for Skye. She and I walked over to check on our elderly neighbor, who was just fine. We are losing limbs -- maple and pecan mostly. The cracking limbs send dread through me: I hate to think of my green friends being battered. But so far, they look like they will be able to bounce back. While we have lost some large limbs, nothing has split in such a way to look life-threatening. And some ice is starting to melt enough to shower down out of the trees, so maybe the end is in sight.

I love your blog, I just found it last week when I went searching for gardening blogs for Arkansas.

We have been lucky so far and not lost electricity, but we sure have ice, and have lost several limbs.

Try to keep warm, and let's all hope the ice melts soon.

Thanks, Jill! The ice is beginning to melt, so the clean-up can soon begin!
