- Used the day for paper work and fooling around. More fooling around than real accomplishment I am sorry to say.
- Two gigs tomorrow cancelled. Rescheduled. It works fine for me right now.
- Karen, as the only resident shoveler, has done a yeoman's job moving snow for the past two days. I am back challenged and the doctor told Jim to delegate those chores. (Isn't that a lovely way to put that.) That left Karen to the heavy-lifting.
- Federal and County governments, schools etc closed tomorrow. Many buses and subways aren't running.
- Power is back in time for the Super Bowl. Good game tonight. Happiness reigns in New Orleans
- That's the right note for good night
Monica called. "We have power." The lilt in her voice said it all. 33 hours is a long time. Fortunately they cook with gas so they have had hot food, tea and coffee.
Remember the boiled eggs of yesterday? Today they tasted good for lunch - egg salad.
10:00 am Good Morning, Sunshine!!
Skies are blue and the sun is bright!
The snow plow has been down the street at least once.
To tell the truth I just got out of bed.
By bedtime, even though the power had come back on,
the house was cold Jim and I slept on the pull out couch in the rec room - near the fire.
But - our son called, they have a situation. Stuck!
- No power since 3 am yesterday. 31 hours.
- Warm near the wood stove in the rec room but the rest of his house is a freezer locker.
- Can't come here because their street has not been plowed.
Outside Karen was hearing stories and picking up neighborhood news:
- We should count our blessings - near-by areas still don't have power
- Chevy Chase Super Market 6 blocks away is dark.
- Connecticutt Avenue is passable, carefully, on hard packed snow.
