Here's hoping all you sister boomers on the East Coast are okay. Just read the news of snow and power outages all over the place. Stay warm!

Thanks yonuh. It began yesterday and ended late this afternoon. We got over two feet, possibly our biggest storm ever. Our power went out last night around 10:00 and was out until mid afternoon. We were shocked when it came back on because we didn't think there was any way BG&E could be out working in the storm. What a pleasant surprise, and boy are we grateful for our warm home and electricity now!

Shoveled out two cars and most of our driveway, but have a long way to go. Church has been cancelled for the morning so I know what we'll be doing; more shoveling.

At 4:00 this morning I began thinking about my office which is glassed in. I realized I had no heat out there so Ross had to come down, unhook my PC and bring the tower up to the warmest room in the house, our bedroom. Crazy. We just got it hooked back up, but this office is still cold so I'm only posting this update.

Hope everyone else is well. Will cehck back tomorrow. HAve a good night.

Right now, its 7:10 p.m. Pacific time and it is thundering like crazy and real windy. Been rqining several dqaysw now aqnd it is pouring now. I have a veal roast in the oven, warm and toasty in here and I am thanking Almighty God for my home and the comforts given to me, but especially for those less fortunate... This has been the worst winter I can remember since living here in Nevada...

chatty, you've been getting rain and we've been getting snow. Wild, huh?

I totally relate to you appreciating your home. Our electircity went out Friday evening around 10:00 and was out until mid-afternoon yesterday. I can't tell you how much I appreciate this warm, lit home! Honestly, the things we take for granted.

It was gorgeous here today. The sun was brilliant. The temps were in the 20s, but the shoveling kept us warm. Our daughter and Ross and I shoveled, then walked in town for lunch at one of the only places open. Snow brings out the best in everyone. All the people we walked past talked and commented. That never happens otherwise.
