We awoke to a very cold and quiet house. Our power went out at 1:30 a.m. I had made some espresso before bed last night ICE (in case of emergency), this was one. I iced mine up and crawled back into bed with my book. German girl donned ski gear and went out to shovel with her sister Tini and the labs. The dogs were in heaven, they thought they had awoken in Labrador itself. The power came back on at 8:49. Yippee! I bounced out of bed, threw in a load of laundry, turned on the computer and the oven .
The snow continues to fall and we continue to eat. Last night we ate the ginger fried rice from Smitten Kitchen and we're still talking about it. This morning German girl made corn muffins and I made the Shakshuka dish from Sunday Suppers. Tini started shoveling a path to our door at 8:00 a.m. in the hopes the power came back on and breakfast was served. And indeed it was. Tune in for the 5:oo Storm Update brought to you by caffeine , protein and carbohydrates.
