This tree was the focal point of our yard. Bloomed a glorious pink color each spring.
This is what was left of it, after we trimmed the branches we had to.
Our thermostat and radiator weren’t communicating overnight, and Liv thought 77 degrees was a good reason to wear her new swimsuit while we reorganized kitchen cabinets this morning. Yes, she is cleaning with a paintbrush that she found. Creative, I know.
Safety first! I was walking by the kitchen window after reading to the girls before naptime. Branch was just falling as I snapped the photo. Joe was not falling so that was nice.
We got power back tonight! We had gone 3.5 days without.
