We’re in the middle of an ice storm here, and I did not sleep last night.
All outdoor things, such as trees, shrubs, vehicles, roads, etc. are covered in a thick layer of ice. It looks beautiful- like a classic winter scene, with branches coated in an inch of glistening ice. However, it has been a nightmare for us.
Last night, we put ourselves to bed, and as soon as I fell asleep, every 20 minutes I was startled awake by what can only be described as a thunderbolt gunshot. This happened almost 10 times. I have not slept.
At 6am, our neighbours were knocking on our door to let us know that one of their tree branches came down on our car. It knocked off the driver’s side mirror. We looked around and we had massive branches down too.
Many parts of our area are out of power as well.
Our fridge is pretty empty, and it’s too icy out there, so I decided to make gluten free chocolate chip cookies!
I tried out this recipe today:
Here’s a picture of DW watching the branches come down.
