Through the recent two nights of heavy winds, the majority of Cedar Mountain residents kept power, thanks to so many Duke Energy workers maintaining the wires and dangerous trees. Still, there were some that lost power but I for one and glad, and surprised, that those on my road did not lose power. The wind was fierce! Several trees did come down, but it could have been much worse.
BABY ITS COLD OUTSIDE
We had the time change last weekend and along with that came cold mornings. The Winter Solstice is on Monday, December 21, 2020.
My two pups are growing thicker coats, the acorns are fat & plentiful, and squirrels are running around with huge walnuts in their small mouths, looking for a place to hide them for later. It’s time to put the yard to sleep until spring. If I don't see you at Ingles, I hope to see you at the community center next spring! Please, stay safe & stay warm.
AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Young
That was quite a storm. My rain gauge showed 5 ½ inches of rain but my neighbor further up the mountain said her gauge read 8 inches. Whether it was 5 or 8 inches my little spring came to life as an impressive cascade. There were at least 5 drops extending up the mountain at the side of my yard. Too bad I can’t put the movie on here.
We were lucky the power stayed on in our little “neck of the woods”.
Almost glad to see my plants were hit with a hard frost. Now I just have to go cut them back until spring. I don’t relish cleaning up the mess though.
