We’re snow bound in Portland and anticipating more snow and freezing rain tomorrow and Christmas day. To the best of my knowledge, everyone I hold near and dear is safe, warm and with family or friends. The power outages have ceased for my dear friends in Sherwood, OR and I’m betting the heat never felt quite so good. We’ve had good friends check in to see how we’re doing and all I can say is “fine”. The drive is shoveled, the roads are passable and the wood supply is nearby. Given the incessent newscaster lament of “oh my… fill in your exclamation here” I’m feeling more than a little comfortable with the world. All my peeps are safe and sound. We’re golden. Let the snow begin… again.
