Beauty and the Beast

This was the most beautiful storm I have ever seen. Truly a winter wonderland. I had never experienced freezing rain before moving to Missouri and this storm was truly unique. For thirty six hours mother nature graced us with a variety of frozen delights.
We lost power on Tuesday and regained it on Saturday. The first two days we read books, took naps, and played Uno by candlelight. By Thursday we were cold and ready to get out of the house. We have all electric and our water is from a well which means no heat, no water, and no way to get to town. Luckily the Sheriff's department came to our rescue and took us, Sophie (my sweet Yorkie), and the cockatiels (Pedro and Lola) safely to town. We went to my parents house and had the best shower and hot meal ever! The town took quite a beating. Trees snapping like toothpicks sounded like gunshots and the damage is everywhere. My thoughts go out to those who are still without power.
For us, these are the images we chose to hold on to.
