Sunday's weather predictions were for a good old fashioned toad-strangler of a rain. So what happened? We had about an inch of rain, followed by a coating of ice, followed by 6" of snow. Of course, that also led to a power outage around 11PM. So I lit a couple of oil lamps, and after about 2 hours, my dearly beloved and I went to bed. Dan and Jeff sat up with Thor, playing Chess, until the power came back on around 2. It was necessary. Dogs need electricity; it's part of their natural habitat.
But the world did look pretty Monday afternoon, and we were fortunate not to lose any tree limbs!
If you haven't already done so, you should at least consider making a King Cake today. It will give you a taste of the New Orleans Mardi Gras right there in your own home. You can find my recipe and instructions here.
Happy Tuesday, everyone!
