Calm Before the Storm
They are forcasting another storm tonight, with high winds, freezing temperatures, ice and snow. Hopefully the power won't go out again. This time I have the car gassed up, and we just went shopping for groceries. Almost bought a little generator but decided against it. I am going to make a big pot of Italian white bean soup, with chicken and veggies and bacon and white wine in it. Enough to eat for a few days.
The funny thing is that it is actually quite nice out right now, for January. Patches of blue sky, calm winds, about 50 degrees. It's almost Spring-like. I even saw some of the local high school kids hanging out at Starbucks in shorts and flip flops. So . . . we'll see what comes. But I think we're in for another bumpy night.
