View From My Front Yard

This is what I am seeing from my front window today. The giant tamarack is coated with snow. Hubby took this shot. He is at home, resting and getting over the shock of an unfortunate accident yesterday.

He was carrying some boxes into a customer's store. There was a crack on the sidewalk in front of the shop, with one half of the crack an inch higher than the other half. He tripped and crashed into the plate glass window. The window shattered and cut him in the forehead, on both wrists, on the little finger of the left hand and his knees took a beating too.

Poor guy had to be taken to the hospital in an ambulance to get stitched up. He is alright and considers himself very lucky that there were bars behind the window or else it could have been a lot worse.

Oh Inga how very lucky that your hubby didn't get seriously hurt, I bet he's feeling pretty sore and sorry today. The tree is gorgeous,. I love snow but we don't get much only on the mountain. Belinda

Wow, such a beautiful tree.

From reading your latest post it's a good job your husbands got a highly developed sense of humour!
Reading about his accident really made my knees go weak!

That's an amazing tree! I would love to see that amount of snow. It's been so hot here in Melbourne (Australia) recently!

I hope your husband has fully recovered from his accident!
