Snowstorm in October? It’s actually not unusual or unexpected in Northeast Ohio but boy, was it a pain when we had one last week! Our backyard looked like a disaster zone with broken tree limbs everywhere – I think we must have had at least 20 decent-size branches down, with several of them on our roof. And of course, we had widespread power outages and downed phone lines, which meant no internet access for two and a half days! Amazingly, we survived (lol) although we can’t say the same for our 10-year old. :D Now, if only someone could remind Mother Nature to bring on the snow ONLY after all the leaves have fallen, we would appreciate it! All in all though, we are thankful that there were only minimal damages – a broken fence rail, a small hole in the siding, and a few dents on the roof and gutter. Can we have perfect weather from now on? Fat chance, huh?
