storm watch

We are tuckered out and hunkered down. Another Snowmageddon is bearing down on the vicinity but it's going to be ice this time and the potential for losing power is great which is worrisome because we keep cosy here with little room sized electric heaters. We cook with gas here but I no longer have a stove top coffee pot. I wonder if they still sell those squatty pyrex ones where you could watch the miracle unfold.

The Badges are all mounted and signed..many thanks to the collectors who snapped them up...there are more in the pipe if the lights stay on.

This writer is mentally wrung out. The last rewrite (I swear) was finished this morning. I feel like I've been on a trip which is a very inside joke. So, for restoration (even if the power goes) there are three new books, "The Glass Castle" by Jeanette Walls, "the Secret History" by Donna Tartt and "Dear Life" by Alice Munro. I pulled a new tarot card too, just for good measure.

I recently read The Silver Star by Jeanette Walls. I loved it. She is able to write about really difficult family relationships with wonder, dignity, and humor. She is speaking here in San Diego, and I hope to go hear her.
Stay warm and safe.

Hmmm.... maybe a camping coffee pot? I remember the pyrex ones, but haven't seen any in ages. Stay bundled up, and hope you have plenty of provisions to wait it out!
