The attitude of gratitude part 2

Well, the events of last week reminded me just how lucky and spoiled I am.  We really were very lucky that the power outages were so spotty.  We didn't have power at the studio for a few days, but it was restored right away at the house.  While driving through a neighborhood you could see that just about half the houses on every block had power.  It makes you appreciate friends and family and even kind strangers that are there for you in a pinch.  It made me feel really bad that people were struggling to keep warm yet our Christmas Village was fully lit.  Ogden lost a lot of trees and roofs, but most of the damage was south of us.

I want to extend a sincere thank you to the men and women of Utah Power and Light for their courageous efforts to restore warmth and safety to the residents of the Wasatch front.

We've been very busy and have lots to show you, so I'm going to post it a little at a time.  Here's today's installment.  More soon!

Wow, everything is so wonderful. It does make us appreciate the luxuries of life when you are without them.

We've had crazy wind up here, also! 80-110mph wind storms. Glad you all are safe. Wonderful pieces!
