Mother Nature stopped by this week and left her mark. It’s been a very strange week indeed. We (along with thousands of others) lost power for a few days due to a snow storm this past Saturday. In a nutshell, it was astonishing to see communities come together and support one another. Food and shelter were shared. Friends camped out in our home after our power was restored. It’s still messy out there, with debris from trees strewn all over yards and streets. Trick- or- treating has been postponed until this Saturday night to give everyone a chance to regroup. A post on life during the storm is in the works with more details.
In the meantime, here are a few groovy green things to keep you entertained over the weekend.
