Winter storms, power outages and upcoming Community Luncheon ~ Margo’s Plymouth Report

2/9/20

Our interesting weather continues! You needed to be quick over the last several days in order to see if the precipitation was rain, sleet or snow. I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised to find the shoveling easy on Saturday morning since the top layer was fluffy, light snow. Of course, about five inches down I hit the ice layer!

It really did look beautiful although I know some folks experienced power outages. I imagine that more limbs would have splintered and crashed down had the snow been any heavier. On the bright side, the snow glistened in the moonlight on Friday night, plus the sunrise the next morning was lovely. Trees looked like spun glass and many reflected a rainbow of colors when the sun was out.

It has been difficult to keep up with the bird feeder these days. The inclement weather seems to make them ravenous! I admit that I become a bit frustrated when the finches hog the feeder and I been known to knock on the window in order to give the chickadees a chance to swoop in and out to grab a seed or two.

I have not been receiving much information on the students in our area, so please feel free to send some news my way! I noticed that congratulations are in order for Ian Dupont for making the Dean’s List at Champlain college. I am sure there are other achievements that should be recognized, as well.

Hoping that there will not be any snow for the upcoming Community Luncheon on Thursday, 2/20 at 11:30 at Tyson church. It looks like the meal is all set, so I hope that folks will plan to attend and that stories of love will abound!
