Can you believe that I just had a  snow storm?  And it knocked out our power for over 24 hours?  I know I live in the north, but seriously?  The kids go out for Halloween tomorrow!!  With snow on the ground!  How the heck are they going to do that?  This is totally crazy.  I took some pictures to prove it to you!!!
This is a total blizzard!  We got 8+ inches!!

My poor pine trees!  Can you see that the branches are so heavy with snow that they are touching the ground?

Here's a close up.  It is really almost unbelievable!!

And finally, this is my Zentangle Inspired Art.  The challenge at  I Am The Diva was to try "New Tangle Punzel".  But the way to start is to do the pattern "Chainging" first.  Go to I am the Diva to see how it's REALLY done!!  This is my attempt.  The picture is a weird color because I took it in my living room 10 minutes ago.  I didn't actually edit it  The saddest part *tears* is I am to late to join the linky.  Stupid snow!!  Ruined it!!
Hope you are all great, and snow free!

  10. Oh Daniella,
    Here in Southern California we don't see much snow unless you go up high in the mountains. I love the snow, and haven't seen it in years. You're so lucky. I bet your kids will have a blast going trick or treating around all that snow. Have fun tonight, my friend.

  12. Your snowfall and powerloss even was on the news in the Netherlands!!!! I thought about you Danielle! I'm glad your back on line and everything is well now. We had a sunny day here... I hope the snow won't get here that early as it did over at your place - I'm not ready for that yet!

  15. Hello Daniella,

    We saw this on the news while in sad to see trees down...but glad to hear that you are all right.


  16. Hi Daniella,

    It looks like your Christmas pictures not early fall. lol

    We have been on a generator due to no power. My area of New Jersey still has many power lines down. Most of my neighbors still don't have power. My kids have no school and everything is pretty much closed.
    So much for fall. lol


  17. Wow! How pretty! Not convenient but very lovely! We don't ever get snow here! Your artistic talent is something to be proud of! X
