We’re expecting another snowstorm in the next few hours. Earlier this morning we walked to the store to get a few things in preparation for being stuck up in here in the event the power goes out. There’s no real way to beat the cold when that happens, but we can eat our way through the chilly evenings now. I was going to buy beer and wine so we could drink our way through, but it would have been difficult to carry up the steep and icy hills.
I only fell once, on my way down a hill, bracing my fall by landing on top of a felled branch. I gripped a twig of that branch so hard, it tore off part of my middle finger, but don’t worry, I’m fine. I just left a little trail of blood to the grocery store where I bought some cheap, shitty band aids that are totally worthless.
Also, we saw a dead bird that looked like it just plain froze and fell out of a tree. We (Janie) picked it up and put it somewhere other than the middle of the sidewalk. It didn’t seem appropriate to leave him there. He’s enjoying his eternal rest in a bush in front of someone’s yard.
If you don’t hear form me for several days, it’s because the power’s out and Janie and I are waiting for one another to die so we can cut the dead one open and slip inside, like the tonton in Star Wars.
To entertain you, here’s something cute falling asleep:
