  •  Hello, Good Morning Happenistas. (4+ / 0-)

    Right in the middle of reading this diary about one hour ago, my power went out. Grrrrrr. At least it was daylight, and I could open some shades and get light in here. Then, I went back to bed, lol.

    One hour without power doesn't seem to have hurt the frozen foods. Everything looks okay and still frozen. Funny that the refrigerator was my biggest worry. I had shopped yesterday and bought a little extra to stock up for a blizzard just in case.

    It's snowing. Looks like a couple of inches at least on the ground, maybe three. Still very lightly coming down.

    I am lucky. I don't have to leave the house. Just going to stay in and stay warm.

    Hope everyone's morning started out better than that and that all is well.

      Wow.  It's too early for that :)  Glad it was only a one hour power outage, OLinda. I forget where you are located. God, my memory is terrible for certain things, pretty good for others, especially where numbers are involved.  In any case, hunker down and snuggle up and I hope there's some joy in it and no more pwoer outages :)

        Just west of Denver. Snow right now is not too terribly unusual, but I do recall when I first moved here many years ago, the first snow was usually around Halloween. Getting earlier all the time. This may actually be our 3rd snow this season. The first two were overnight and very light, and did not stick at all. This is the first one that feels like a snow. :)

        I was born in California, southern California even, then lived in Sunnyvale, then Napa, then Clearlake.  Transferred out here with a job years ago. I'm here for the duration now, but I often wish I had stayed in California. At the time, going with the job seemed like the only thing to do. Wonder what would have happened if I stayed and looked for other work. (Snow makes me moody this way.)

          I've been there on business a few times. But when it gets cloudy and snowy, I can see how it would bring on that moody feeling.  I'd definitely take it easy today, with a comfortable spot, a hot drink (or four) and something sweet :)

          When the days get cold and cloudy here, I am going to work on my quest to be a master soup chef :) I've started a bit, with two soups over the past few weeks.  I really need to step up my bread making skills too.  My daily bread recipe is really getting boring. KBO bought an italian artisan bread from whole foods the other day and it was so much more interesting than mine.  Time to mess with the recipe and read some more recipes.
