     Our son's family is still without electricity.  The power company posted an update on their website yesterday.   They said they have reduced the number of people without power by about 28%.  There are now about 4200 people without power, down from over 6000.  A good sign that things may be improving was the sight of a company truck on the main road near our lane.  It is the first one we've seen since the storm hit on Tuesday.
   Our horse barn is also still without power.  And now there are 5 inches of snow on top of the ice.  It is still snowing and extremely beautiful today.  I decided to go for a walk with my camera so that I could attempt to capture some of the beauty.   That turned out to be quite an effort because of the layer of ice under the snow.  A couple of times I nearly fell down, but I succeeded in getting a few good pictures to help me remember.
    For anyone who has romanticized living in the country, I am posting a picture of my country guy feeding the chickens.  It's not all fun, but we think it is worth it!
