Ice Ice Baby

We got slammed with a pretty significant ice and snow storm here in Memphis. We lost power on Friday night, but only for about 45 minutes, and thankfully, it came back on. We had the gas fireplace blazing, but it still would have been a cold night with no heat.

Saturday morning we awoke to find our beautiful Bradford pear tree had split in the night. It grazed the house and broke one of the window screens. Could have been much worse, though -- it didn't miss the window by more than a few inches!

Today, the sun is shining and the ice is melting. The high is supposed to be 34, which will be great.

Here are a couple pictures of our poor tree:
