Missing in Action~Ice Storm

Well needless to say we finally lost power. Sometime Wednesday night we lost it. Was out of power all day Thursday, Thursday night and it finally came back on around noon today (Fri~Jan 30th). Boy we were just tickled. But my in-laws have been out of power since Tuesday of this week and they don't expect it to be back on till next week. I hate to see anyone without power. My husband took our generator over for them to use.

It will be quite some time before the kids will go back to school. The ice around here is 2 an half inches thick. Just slightly south of us got up to 4 inches of ice. It's not a pretty picture around here. Trees have lost their tops and some so bad they will have to be cut completely down. Which is the case for some of our trees in our yard. The husband has been working two days getting some of them cleaned up. But it will be a long process.

Ice Storm Photo's

Here's a few nice lovely ice photo's around our homeplace. This is what we woke up to this morning. We have a nice thick layer of ice underneath the snow. WE got about 3 inches of ice and 2-3 inches of snow. So far we've been real lucky to still have power but my in-laws on the other side of town doesn't.

Clickable Links in your Text Tutorial

I've been asked about how I make some of my words in my text linkable. Well it's really quite easy to do this. I've decided to do this small tutorial for those who want to know how to do this.

Photo #1: Click on NEW POST and this is what your next screen will look like.
Photo #2: Type your text or words you want to say. Now highlight the words you want to have linkable. Just like I show you in the photo. And then click on that little green round ball with a chain link.
Photo #3: Your screen will look like this now. You will need to the url address to place here. So go get that to place in the box like shown. Click ok.

Photo #4: In this photo your text will look like this once you've linked up. And you can continue to type out your texts. OR if you want you can highlight those same words and change their color.
Now you know how to make clickable links in your text.
