It is a wonder I know where I am. Went to Beaver yesterday. Front door was frozen shut. Had to climb through knee high snow around to the back door. Poured hot water from tap through the screening and melted the ice so I could bring things in through the front. Otherwise they would have mostly stayed in car. Getting through that much snow- partly light and partly frozen - is not easy. Sorted myself out, took overdue book to library, picked up mail, noted there was a movie happening so I ate a nice meal I had brought along and went to movie. Won door prize! A start-a-lavender pot, two lovely photo cards by Mary Lou and a candle. M is a photographer and gardener; she arranged for the film showing.

Used "new" electric blanket on bed; put it on about 4 pm, after starting the wood stove, and at 10 the bed was warm!!! And the house was 69F. The movie was a better idea than sitting next to the fire for two hours! However, the back deck had two feet of snow and I was not up for shoveling a path to the wood pile. SO, having used most of the available wood to heat the house for the night...

Today I drove back to Dupont with the stuff I had managed to load into car - after it deigned to start about 9:45 am. Arrived back and off loaded car, ate, went through 255 emails and now I am here. Ready to head out to music tonight. Slightly bleary eyed but awake. Hope the music is good!
