At least yesterday's nasty ice/snow storm left without too much damage or hassle... we were without power for about six hours, but all is OK. Pretty much everything had melted by the late afternoon. The creek has a nearly complete crust of ice on it. It hasn't been that frozen since the first winter we were here (2003-4), and it froze over completely -- pretty rare for a tidal creek. The boys missed one day of school, had an early dismissal on Tuesday and a late start today, then they have tomorrow and Monday off. I love having them home, but it plays havoc with my work schedule.
Time to get baking -- I have a meeting tonight and it's my turn for snacks, so I'm making one-bowl brownie cookies... mmm... hopefully I'll get to finish the sock I'm working on.
