Our power was out for 48 hours but we were able to stay comfortable with a gas fireplace and the ability to cook food on our gas stovetop and outdoor BBQ.
This morning the sun is shining gloriously - a wonderful counterpoint to the last few days of gloomy darkness.
Here are a few pictures.
As the morning goes along everything just gets brighter and brighter. I'm running in and out with the camera.
I wish I could capture completely the way everything is sparkling in the bright sunshine. Nature's Merry Christmas!
