it came out of the wordwork

Around 10:00 AM the temperature rose to 0 degrees F

So there we go; light snow started about 15 minutes ago as far as I could tell. Around 10:00 AM the temperature rose to 0 degrees F ... it was -9.6 according to the outer sensors when I got up around 7. We're expecting 18 inches of snow they say. Hope the power stays on, yes I do, 'cause there's work to be done.

So far today I have cleaned snow off the front steps to make sure we can get out that door if we have to, I have filled the bird feeders to the very tippy tippiest top, swept yesterday's snow off the cars, washed and started the towels drying, and unlimbered my mandolin for a breakfast including potatoes, mixed sweet peppers and onions, sausage, garlic, carrots, and secret ingredients, all mixed together in olive oil, with the addition of a nice dash of rosemary vinegar about three minutes before serving... The good news is there are leftovers.

Also have started the bread machine kneading my dough for me since I really ought to be writing something, too. We'll see if my new experimental roll-making toy* helps me divide that dough into six mostly equal roll-size lumps at the appropriate time. If Sharon is off work tomorrow I may bake an apple-cinnamon coffee cake since the ingredients have been in the way for the last few days. If I don't leave some of the ingredients in plain sight I forget that I have them sometimes...

Noon ... gotta start writing I guess, though all this "other stuff" is actually a sign that *I am so writing, darn it* so maybe I got to start transcribing what the back-brain has been doing while I've been doing this other stuff.

Lunch will probably happen before the rolls are done, so I guess we'll have the tomato chicken and rice soup I made Friday with store bought whole wheat bread. Happens. Guess I can add some quartered cheese slices on the side to spiff it up.

Wheee... look at that snow come down!

=========================================
*"experimental roll-making toy" is actually a professional stainless steel pizza cutter with a 4 inch in diameter cutting wheel. I hope that'll let me get those rolls looking about the sandwich size....

Chapter 37 went up hours ago. Srsly.

Snowing so hard they've added 6 inches to our expectations - now calling for 18-24 inches...wheee... blowing so hard that the shield on the woodpecker feeder is threatening to smash itself

More if we have power later
