I am pleased to announce

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.

Here’s what’s happening

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

1pm Farm Weather Update

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.

Guess who got it right?

6am I tell you. And it’s just now starting to drizzle.

My morning is ruint. (That’s r∙u∙i∙n∙t: Past tense of ruin in Southern) I was told by the United States Government that I was going to wake up to snow. Liars.


I’ve been cheated.

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.
