Whew.. what a long week.. OR has it been two weeks??? When I left my mountain home to head for CHA in CA, it was 65 degrees. And this is what I returned to::
the frozen tundra at the airport. This wasn't the worst of it, this is just after I was able to grab my camera from my bags. I was exhausted because I was stranded in Dallas the night before as a result of this storm.
The roads were crazy. For a second, a brief second, I considered taking a walk up to the front of our road. Major damage. Jim had to chain saw his way out one day. But then I came to my senses and decided pictures of our backyard were enough!
We were lucky as only a few branches broke under the pressure of the ice. Our friends down the road had a branch go through the roof of their sun room. Up the street, people cars were covered in debris. Thank goodness for the garage!
These are pics of our backyard. As damaging as it was, the glistening of the ice on the branches and roof is mesmerizing to me!
Next up... Here are some pictures from Creative Imagination's preview party. Always fun!! Getting to see those reps who love to sell my stuff. These were taken at my make and take at the party
I love this woman.. even if I can't remember her name ;( sorry! I handed her my camera and asked her to shoot some pics for me, which she graciously agreed. I told her I had to be serious!
Then she told me I was too serious! Hey this is close to rocket science for a girl who wants to throw paint around!
And here is the lovely Stayce Dewid
helping me... and Lord knows I need all the help I can get
and one more of my friend Roann
