A Big Tree Mess

There are pros and cons to living in the woods.
Pro: Lovely scenery, outdoor activities, nature and wildlife.
Con: When you have a big winter makes a really big mess.

Snow in the woods=really beautiful
Ice Storm and wind in the woods= really scary and eventually ugly.

I haven't left the house since Sunday morning. One week tomorrow. The ice storm that came after all the snow was frightening. All day and night we listened to branches cracking like gun shots and huge branches crashing to the ground. Some sounded real close and some we could tell were in the distance. There are hundreds of thousands without power. I don't know how ours managed to stay on, but the worst we had was about a 30 second black out.

Today it stopped raining for a second and I went outside to look around the house a little bit and see what things were looking like. Ugh, I hate seeing beautiful trees just destroyed. We will see how spring and summer will bring new growth and beauty to nature's natural pruning session!

What a big, big, ugly mess things are though!

Winter steelhead fishing should be in full swing, and that is definitely beautiful.
