Freak Snowstorm With Damage

Snow before Halloween is unusual for this area. And the storm we got was unusually costly. It was a wet, heavy snow that snapped tree limbs, and took down whole trees in other parts of town. I suppose we were lucky -- all we lost were a bunch of fence panels (not that we needed the expense just now...) But it certainly could have been worse. We lost power around 6 pm, and spent a cold dark night wondering if the village tree was going to land on the house. Thankfully, it didn't, and our power came back at 230 am. We made the best of it, hauling out the camping lanterns and glow sticks, and I tried to keep Mikro entertained with a craft project while I worked on sculpting his dragon mask in the semi-dark.
