Thankful

Thankful to find all of these gorgeous trees still standing this morning after our freak October snowstorm here in Massachusetts.
Thankful the forecast was wrong and we only got 8 inches of snow instead of 12-16.  
Thankful the day dawned sunny and warm and much has already melted.

Thankful that the many broken tree limbs did not fall on our house or car.  
Thankful I did not need a chainsaw to get out of the driveway. 
 
Thankful our snug little house stayed warm in spite of the power outages.
Thankful the power came back on in time to cook the overnight french toast.

 
Thankful schools are closed tomorrow due to downed power lines and blocked roadways, giving me a windfall of time to spend in the studio.  
Thankful to have witnessed so much beauty.
I hope all my fellow Northeast friends are safe and warm tonight.

  3. All your photos are beautiful! I'm glad you're safe and warm. I'm thankful it made it to 80 degrees here today! I don't want any of that white stuff except on the mountaintops where I can see it from a distance.

  7. Wow, wow and ...WOW! Thankful to see the stunning place you where you live! When I saw your first 3 images the first thing that came to mind was some gorgeous red pictures painted or drawn by the very talented YOU, hung up the trees and photographed to make unique Christmas cards. maybe they could be cut round to look like baubles? Totally cool? Or ridiculous? I live in Perth so we never see snow, unless we get a snowy Christmas card! Keep well, and warm, and safe, and dry! Regards, Nadya
