snow power no power

we had fair warning of an impending storm and were well stocked with food, water and emergency candles. friday morning i bustled around inside while dan chopped wood for hours outside. i cooked a huge vat of stew, baked two loaves of bread, cleaned out all the candle holders, lined up the lanterns, washed and dried four loads of laundry, ground a pound of coffee, bathed, and filled the tub with utility water. we thought the power would make it to saturday at least, but by 6pm friday it was out, and along with telephone and water, remained out until late monday afternoon.

here are some scenes from our snowy, chilly, cozy, tasty, tiring, inspiring weekend.

how was your weekend?
