Just wanted to send a short apology to my regular readers for posting nothing for the past few days. Here’s what happened…
Monday, here in Seattle, we got hit by a snowstorm, followed by a sudden drop in temperature, followed by a big wind storm. I got home
early, without too much trouble, unlike a lot of people who got stuck in
gridlock for hours (Heard stories of people taking over 12 hours to go less
than 20 miles). Once I got home, however, the power went out because of falling
trees. Power stayed out at my house till 10:30 AM on Friday morning. Adding to
this was the fact that the area where I live got hardest hit. It’s a hilly area
and with the iced up roads and the trees that were down we literally couldn’t get
out till Thursday. We were actually fine as we have a wood stove that kept us
nice and warm and which we were able to use to cook on as well. Thanksgiving
consisted of steaks cooked on the barbeque. We didn’t actually have
Thanksgiving till Saturday.
All this to explain that, having no power, no internet connection and no way of getting anywhere to get a connection the blog ended up with no postings on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.
Things are back to normal so let me wish you all a belated Happy Thanksgiving and a hearty apology.
