The power went out at around 5:00 a.m. We're early risers around here anyway, so we all got up to start a wood fire, plug in the one phone we have that's not a cordless, eat a cold breakfast by candlelight, and talk about the "olden days." The phone rang! A friend called to let us know that school has been postponed until 10:00.
The power's back on now, so I 'm whipping out a quick post before I run the girls over to school. Even as I type, the wind continues to rage about the house. It's all very loud and wild.
I promise I'll move on to a different subject next week, but in honor of finter, here's one last post about this time of year that's not quite fall, not quite winter . . .
