Hello again:  lights,  water, heat, internet connection, and some bodily energy restored –

We saw only Ice and Darkness for a few days:

Snow Falling from Tree


There was beauty in this Midwestern Christmas Ice Storm –  All our trees  became sparkly silvery white.


In spite of being plunged back into the cold and physical labor and fatigue of the 1870s, it was difficult to walk through a parking lot without clicking off photo after photo of  familiar things made enchanting.

One morning the sun came out.   For a little while, anyway.    We saw creamy white sunlight, white clouds, pale blue sky,  and the trees had formed giant chandeliers of crystal light.  SAMSUNG

While writing this short post,  we lost power again…for two hours…  We live in the dots and dashes of power fluctuations, so I’ll sign off for now while the electrons are flowing, and say:

        “a dark and lovely  Merry Christmas to you all.”

We don’t need electricity to visit the Holy Family . . . . .
