Mother Nature, are you okay?

I only ask because as I looked out my bedroom window tonight to see how the winter storm was faring, I couldn't help but hear the creaking, frozen limbs of our old pine tree.

That is covered in buds.

I'm confused about that.  
However, I do congratulate you on how you make even twisted, frozen, budding limbs into Art.

Now, if I can get just get this photo-bomber out of the way, I might be able to take some more pictures.
