This morning I woke up in the middle of the night to a strange blue light. Our power had gone off and on and our computer screen in the office had come back on when the power came back. So I got up and turned it off and went back to sleep. Then, about 5:30 am I awoke to a loud crash and a wail. The crash was a large section of the oak tree in front of the farmhouse coming down into our yard. The wail was Jen, who was already at the window, mourning our beloved tree's deep injury.
When we came back into the house, the power was out. We read for a while and then I went over to help with the last day of the Farm Stay. They were excited because maybe they would have to stay another day. Also, with no power, we had no water. So we melted snow on the stove top and made do. Of course, we were plowed out by 1 pm, and Doug made it here fine.
