This is a picture of my neighbor’s front yard. Lovely, huh?
It was gorgeous Sunday night. See that street light at the right edge of the picture? The light from it shining through the ice-covered branches of what once was pretty tree made it sparkle like a crystal Christmas tree ornament.
Now…not so much. The saddest part of all of this – even sadder than being without heat or Internet – is that this is what 1 in 20 trees in the city of Tulsa look like. We’ve lost a significant amount of shade for next summer, and I will go on record now and predict significantly more Ozone Alert days, too.
Well, Barnes and Noble just announced they’re closing in 10 mins, so I better pack this baby up and clear out.
Today, I am grateful for dry, warm socks. 🙂
