Power Out !!

This is our third heavy snow fall this winter...this one is up to my knees so far !
Still coming down at 5:30pm Saturday.
Should have gotten a supply of firewood since our power went out for 5 hours this morning.
Hubby and I stayed in bed with every blanket in the house on the bed...and waited for the power to come back on.

What happened to my arborvitaes ?

Car got stuck trying to get in our driveway last night...returning home from work.
Visibility was no more than 100 feet when driving on highway.

Summer time photo of right side of backyard.

This is what it looks like now !

Can't forget the birds.

Maybe I'll bundle up and get out tomorrow to try and save the arborvitaes and some other shrubs.
Only problem is I DON"T HAVE SNOW BOOTS !!
They don't even sell snow boots in any of our stores.
Have to go through my closet...think I have a pair of cheap vinyl boots from Payless.
