that in so far as this statement is intelligible, we are back to “normal.” But it weren’t easy. Early this morning– after we’d risen before the sun, cranked up the generator, and plugged in the drip coffee maker and the toaster — as we were moving the generator from the back to the front (a
As of yesterday morning there were 32,000 homes without power in Mississippi. As of yesterday evening there were 1000 homes in our power association’s service area which did not have power. We remain among them.
On the bright side, we have a generator and Amazon Prime. Green Acres is ridiculously funny.
I bequeath my soul to God… My body to be buried obscurely. For my name and memory, I leave it to men’s charitable speeches, and to foreign nations, and the next age. From Bacon’s last will and testament
Spock: Our association has been most unusual and fascinating. I have… enjoyed it. Live long and prosper, Leonard. Nimoy: I think I’ve already done the former, Spock. And– in no small part thanks to you– I’ve certainly done the later. From I Am Spock by Leonard Nimoy (1995)
There isn’t going to be any Bacon today. We had a delightful dinner of stuffed peppers cooked in a skillet powered by LP gas & a match, and leftover bean salad from yesterday from a refrigerator cooled down today by a generator. We enjoyed our meal not in the Big house but in a small
I called the folks at the Power Association and the fellow who answered the phone said he didn’t know but they were working on it and I said we were just deciding if we should crank up the generator and he said, “I would if I had one.” And so we did. ‘Course I had
2pm. Two o’clock minus six o’clock equals eight hours. The snow that they forecast would start at 6am has finally started to fall. Mr. Big Food just asked what the forecast was for tomorrow. We both laughed.
The radar is back up at weather.GOV and the government is telling me heavy snow will continue this afternoon. Accuweather is still telling me it IS snowing. Weather Underground says there are ice pellets.
Oh My Good Lord. It is NOT snowing. I can look out there and see that it’s not snowing. If it were snowing don’t you think I’d know it? That’s Accuweather, by the way. Might as well be the US Government. The depth of my disappointment knows no bounds. I had so hoped to take
This is the 11am update on the WINTER STORM WARNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As reported by Weather Underground, emergency management reports ice on trees and power lines. Here at the Farm it’s about 32° and raining. I could talk myself into believing there was ice on the pine trees. Of note, among all of the various non-United States
He that questioneth much shall learn much, and content much; but especially if he apply his questions to the skill of the persons whom he asketh; for he shall give them occasion to please themselves in speaking, and himself shall continually gather knowledge. But let his questions not be troublesome, for that is fit for
It has been four hours since it hasn’t started snowing. Missy & I are disappointed and I’ll bet we are not the only ones. On the way home last evening at about 8pm we passed the village volunteer fire department building. It’s across the street from the burnt out courthouse. The parking lot was crammed
They said it was going to start snowing at 6am this morning. They cancelled classes and EVERYTHING because they said it was going to start snowing at 6am. I even made coffee at 4:45am this morning so I could have coffee at 6am when the snow started to fall.
And here it is 7:39am and there is no snow and there is no snow falling.
And if you think I sound upset you should hear Missy.
I’m not going to link to anything. I’m just saying. I love the idea of what America was supposed to be. I love that people managed to approximate the idea. I love the thought put into our Constitution. I love the Bill of Rights. What a Story! What a history! I love that I was
