This will be home sweet home for me ... I won't have gorgeous Dr. Zhivago to cuddle with, but my kitty Harriet loves to sit in my lap, so at least that will be warm.
I had to get candles and flashlight batteries -- so did everybody else in town. We were all making the March of the Penguins to the drugstore. Of course, if the power really does go out, so does the heat ... then my eyelids will freeze shut and candles and flashlights won't be any help.
The Thing of it is, I should have installed indoor plumbing...
I'll end with something really beautiful.. The Snowman makes cold and snow look fun. And the superb song "Walking in the Air" always makes me feel fabulous, no matter what the weather. Sung by England's St. Paul Cathedral choirboy Peter Auty with a piercing sweetness.
Happy shivering, everybody!
